If I change a User password in AD & then delete the stored password from the Credentials Manager vault on the Windows 7 client, is that all that needs to be done before I logon to the client with the new password while locally connected to the domain?

Not sure why you would be asking that, what the need is? I don't mean to sound crass at all, just wondering if there is a legit reason for this. Otherwise:
If you change a users password in AD, once they log off and log back on it will work.
If you change the users password in AD like that and they do not log off, then they open something or perform an action that uses AD Authentication they will get an error stating it could not authenticate because the current cached user info does not match that in AD. So once you change it, you need to ensure the user is logged off or logs off before trying to do something that requires authentication

I ask because I've had an issue in the past with a remote user when I changed their password and don't recall all the steps I took to resolve it.
I will try your suggestion.
Thanks for you reply.
