    Unanswered: SQL Server Express - user authentication - cached profiles

    If I have a laptop running SQL Server Express, and a user who has logged onto the network domain previously on that laptop, but does not currently have network connectivity; will SQL Server Express be able to authenticate the user and check for domain group membership based on the cached user profile on the laptop?

    Yes because Windows maintains a local cache for the credentials. Otherwise you would not be able to log in with your domain account when your laptop is not connected to the network. See:
