Your IIS server will cache domain credentials for use when domain
authentication is not available.

Subject: Domain Controller Messup
We recently had an electric fire in our organization
b'cos of which power had to be turned off for a while.
This seems to have lead to hardware failure of
domain controller (DC) of a domain (let's call the
domain 'test'). The DC shuts down as soon as we
boot it up. The domain also has a IIS webserver, and
an exchange server 2000 in the domain.
Now on the IIS server, we have enabled ftp through
the domain. Even though the domain controller is
switched off, the users are still able to be
authenticated via the domain and use the ftp i.e when
the user logs on to our ftp server they type in
test\username and password and it works even
though the DCis now tunred off and there are no
backup DC. Since we have an exchange server 2000
in the domain, all the domain accounts are populated
on the exchange server too. So we turned off the
exchange server too and still the users can use the
ftp using the domain account. Can anyone please
help me understand how this may be happening?
