They use their computer accounts to authenticate themselves. Now I want to make the same scheme in a remote office. But there is no domain controller there, and the problem is that sometimes electricity or the Internet is lost in the main office, and Active Directory becomes temporarily unavailable, which means that computers cannot connect to the Wi-Fi network.

Is it possible to configure FreeRadius so that in the event of a domain controller being unavailable, clients at a remote office can connect to the Wi-Fi network using their computer accounts (something like a cache)?
All of that caching is done in Active Directory. You will need to install an AD replica in the local office.
