i have a xp pro notebook attached to a sbs2003 server. The notebook is a member of the workgroup and is not doing a domain login.  when i enable offline files the files will sync and my document folder will have the blue arrows. i can put to note book into hibernation leave the office, wake up the notebook and my offline files are available. If i reboot the notebook away from the office my offline file are not available.
when i return the the office and login offline files are disabled and i will need to re-enable offline files.
I have used the local policy to enable offline files but again after i reboot offline files are disabled and the enable box is greyed out. Also i set the cache size to 20% in the policy and the greyed out cache size is still at about 6%

It's just been a busy week... relax.  :-)

One problem is that you should not use the local policy to enable offline files... this should be a setting that comes from Group Policies if you have run the My Documents Folder Redirection Wizard on your SBS.

So, start by re-initializing the offline cache on your laptop as outlined here:  http://sbsurl.com/csc

Then, in the Server Management Console > Users, run the Configure My Documents Folder Redirection Wizard.  If it's currently enabled, disable and run again to enable.

Then go back to your laptop and log off and back on to restore the offline cache.

If you are still having problems, please run the following command on the laptop and post the results here:

C:\>gpresult /z >gpresult.txt

(this will create a text file at c:\gpresult.txt which contains the info to post back)

This computer is not logging into the domain is is a member of the workgroup. Do you think joing the domain may solve the problem?


Thank you

Well, YES!  When the computer is not a member of the domain, then you are logging into it locally -- which then means you are asked for credentials when accessing a network share.  These credentials are not cached on your machine unless it's a domain member.
