We had a theft attempt this weekend and I wondered what to do if laptops were stolen. Do anybody have any thoughts on this matter?
Our DA installation is set up so all laptops member of a DA group will automatically go online on our network wherever they are.
I have opened firewall to accept incoming CIFS so I know I can monitor files locally. If anybody know of any free tools etc that can be installed to laptops for localization purposes that would also be nice.

Thanks for posting here.
I’d suggest to first disable this computer account for this lost laptop in AD database and suggest the user who loses his laptop to reset his password ASAP and that will help to prevent it to connect back to our network.
Meanwhile, not sure the detail information about our current authentication setting for DA but consider to enable strong CRL checking for IPsec authentication:

Meanwhile, we also have other features that will help to protect our data from the accident about device losing:
