Hi All,

Pardon the intrusion....
This question is not related to samba but I thought the highly 
skilled folks here might have some tips to share.

I've been using Samba AD for a few years for our family and it recently 
occured to me that some of our older offspring might go to unversities in 
various parts of the country (or even abroad) and maybe not come back at 
all (perhaps they'll find a job there).

Since their machines were joined to our AD and since we have severall 
GPOs, is this a disaster waiting to happen (after 180days?). Does anyone 
have a piece of advice to offer here? Ideally, I´d want to convert their 
AD account to a local one while retaining Apps, Login passwd and make sure 
they'll never get locked our of their own machines..

I realize I could also opt for a private VPN but that might not be 
practical here in the long terme..

Any tools/recommendations on this topic?
Thanks for reading,
