I have a windows 2003 network... and 25 users.
sometimes I need to re-start my server... and that is difficult during working hours...
My users have all shared folders (HomeFolders) so none of their data is saved locally.
I was thinking if I allow those shares to be available offline maybe then I could be able to re-start the server ...or they can work on their documents when the server is offline ?
please advice from real experiences if this is a good option or i just should let it as it is now...

thank you.

I don't think that is a good option. I would try to eliminate the cause that force the need to reboot the server. So my question is:
Why do you need to reboot your server during working hours? And why is it so difficult? A reboot should be done in 10 minutes. If 25 users cannot access other data then the files they have open for 10 minutes is not too bad. Of course thats my personal opinion. I don't know about your companies needs.

Rebooting is not necessary on a daily basis...but there are times where I feel that the system is too slow... and that re-booting solves the issue...
don't know exactly.. but I guess it is memory issue...memory that is not freed correctly...??
