One of our roadwarriors called the other day explaining that the DFS shares are not connected when using VPN dialup. Connecting the DFS shares manually worked for all shares which the user currently uses in offline mode.
On the other hand synchronizing and going online with these shares was not possible for him while connected through VPN. Executing the domain logon script located at \\domain.tld\netlogon was not possible, as the path was not found with the error message „The account is not available“.

Solution:
Somehow the cached network credentials of the user got fuxored and instead of using the current credentials of the user, the system used the credentials from the cache to authenticate against the DCs, which obviously is doomed to fail.
Deleting all cached credentials of the user solved the problem immediately.
