Check your GPO on the server. You may have cached passwords turned off.

Doesnt look like that is the problem. I run a network with 50 computers on my network. This computer just started this problem a week ago. I just went to the computer location today and put the credentials to save in Managed Passwords rebooted the computer and when I go back to User Accouns and Manage Password it dissappears.

"I go back to User Accouns and Manage Password it dissappears. "

What is IT the password or the account?

Also, I thought you where having problems with logging into computers that are off line. Now it sounds like a Kerberose problem. You workstations can not be more than 5 Minutes out of sync with you Domain Controller. Check your time.

Sorry I wil try to explain a bit better.

Lets say H1 is on the network. I have two servers a Email Exchange Server and a server that holds a label printer they have to access to in order to print labels at my office. I go to Entire Network and see both Exchsvr and LabelServer in there. I double click Exchsvr and it asks me for credentials so I input it and click Save for future. I enter the exchsvr and it allows me to get the emails for that location. The problem is that I reboot the computer and I go back to Entire Network and Exchsvr and it agains ask me for credentials! It should've been saved on the computer under User Accounts - Advanced - Manage Passwords

Oh, Exchange, that is a different creature. To be honest I have the very same problem with my Exchange because it seems to use Outlook's credentials.

Sorry I wish I could help you but I too have problems with Exchange.

Understand. This is just one location that is having the problem so it leads me to think its on the computer. I check virus and spyware but found nothing. I change the computer name, I took it out of the domain and put it back on. It still keeps losing credentials to certain computer one being the exchange server so they can get there emails. They open Outlook and it ask for the login and password and have the box that says save this password for future uses. They do it and click the box, they reboot the system, open outlook and again ask the same. The other sites I work on has there passwords saved so it wont ask them again.
