Offline files home directory change.

Hello.

Im looking to migrate shares that currently reside on a server to a filer. This is all in place with no issues. The issue i have is changing users laptop offline file location. this can be done through cscmd? If i disable caching on the share do i have to remove the local cache on the laptop? Can i find out how you change someones offline details without having to visit each indiviual.
Thanks

offline files can be touchy....especially with change, i usually remove the whole cache and rebuild if i change locations

Thanks Jay. Is there any real way of autmating this at all? or is this the best policy to adhere to?

start>run>mobsync
Uncheck all locations in the Synch Manager, then click the Setup Tab
and uncheck all locations under the Logon/Logoff page....

start>run>cmd

reg add "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\netcache" /v FormatDatabase /t reg_dword /d 00000001
reg delete "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\netcache\shares" /f
reg add "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\Shares" /ve

reg delete "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\netcache\AssignedOfflineFolders" /f
reg add "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\AssignedOfflineFolders" /ve

Then log back in, and the Adminstratively Assigned offline files key will rebuild. Restart once more, and you should see the redirected folders rebuilding....

thats about the best way, which really is annoying if you have a lot of users, im not a huge fan of offline files myself :) but i do know sometimes they are neccesary

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.
