whole local windows network.

open as local workstation administrator regedit32.exe set:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Winlogon\CachedLogonsCount  > 0

disable all Local Workstation User accounts and reboot the Workstations..

Result??? Is the Domain down or the Domain Controller offline no User is able to login..
