This configuration parameter instructs adclient to authenticate the user using the cached credentials first regardless of the current connectivity state with the Active Directory domain controller.

The parameter value is either true or false. The default is false; for example

adclient.prefer.cache.validation: false

Set this option to true to reduce traffic on slow networks. However, if the Active Directory credentials are not synchronized with the cached credentials, you run the risk of undesired side affects when the computer is online.

You can also set this configuration parameter using group policy.
