server running 2003 (in a 1 dc domain)
laptop running xp pro
i want .mdb files to synchronize.
changed group policy at server and laptop to disable "Files not cached" under Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Network/Offline Files
i did this for the local client machine, for the default domain policy, the local policy on the server, the default domain controller policy, and everywhere else i could possibly think of :)
redid all the above (with appropriate gpupdate commands and logging on and off for good measure) with policy enabled and excluding only *.ldb
went into the registry and drilled down to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\Enabled
and set from 0 to 1 using modify
did this on the laptop for both entries and the server for the first entry, there was no NetCache key for the second entry.
i can manually select 'Make available offline' by right-clicking in explorer, but it's just error messages after that.
