We have a lot of customers who traditionally use on premises solutions with no remote connection (e.g. VPN) to AD.  Under the current circumstances, there are a lot of domain joined Windows 10 devices away from AD, and away from update services they're configured to use (WSUS, network share for click to run app updates, etc.).

What would you say are the most significant problem areas for these devices, the longer they stay disconnected from their 'home' network? (e.g. any issues with secure channel password reset?)
Can you suggest anything to improve the situation for them while they remain disconnected?
What would you recommend the course of action should be for when the devices are able to reconnect to their 'home' network?

NB: this is the education market, so devices are locked down for the average user.

TIA!
Regards, Alan

Can you please clarify what you mean by "disconnected"? - do you mean completely not connected to the internet? Thanks!

@Karen_Simpson Hi, I mean not able to reach AD. All devices will be able to access the internet.
