Unable to login to localprofile without connected to network

I am facing two problem working with Advance Authentication

1) I have on my laptop Client for open Enterprise server 2 SP4(IR11) with Advance Authentication enabled.

I am unable to login to local Profile without connected to the network. Did anyone encountered such problem.

Is there any way that i can login to the local profile?

2) Also i am facing problem while login to the local account (like administrator, user accounts). however, login successful to local profile which already enrolled with advance authenticator. I tried using the below syntax

<computer name>\<Username of local account>
or.\<Username of local account>.

Re: Unable to login to localprofile without connected to net

This is indeed an issue with the Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR11) integration with Advanced Authentication. There is no support for the "Offline Logon" mode of Advanced Authentication in the current shipping Client for Open Enterprise Server releases. This support is planned and required for inclusion in the next Client for Open Enterprise Server IR release, which is targeted at early May 2019, contingent on testing and QA approval to release.

For the issue of specifying ".\localuser" or "computername\localuser" instead of an Advanced Authentication "repository\user", I believe you are correct that Advanced Authentication login is "required" when enabled on Client for Open Enterprise Server. And entering a local user does not bypass this requirement, even with the necessary configuration that will achieve this when using the NetIQ credential provider instead of Client for Open Enterprise Server. We will look into the requirements for supporting this, but I cannot commit to whether it would be addressed in time for this next release or not.
