Offline file error
Posted on 2006-05-26
I need help with this pretty quick so I appreciate any response.
I have given a project manager an new laptop. His old one had XP as well and we mapped drives to the job folders that he was working on and made them available offline with no problem. Well I set his new laptop like that but when he goes out of the office and trys to go to the offline drives it comes back with a message "Configuration informatin could not be read from Domain Controller, either the machine is not available or is offline." That may not be the whole error message but it is the main jest.
Now I have been working on this pretty much all day because he is out of town and I am able to work on it. I have been through many senarios and only once did I reboot without it plugged into the network and the offline files show up. The funny thing is that I didn't do anything different and have tried to repeat that same instance and has not work yet again.
Here is the funny part. I go to the offline folder on the desktop (which of course is not broken into subfolders which is why we do the mapped drive thing) and all the files that are offline show up. That tells me that it is at least syncronizing the files.
Please help. Thanks.
