We use a network share to store users my documents. Its redirected to this share, and the client uses offline files for speed, and just in case the line is down they can still access their data. They used to sync to server 1 for offline files. Then months ago I made them start syncing to server 2 instead. At that time they always wanted to sync with server 1 and server 2. So I had to go into mobsync on each client delete all partnerships and all offline files, and start from scratch for server 2. This worked for months, and server 1 had no file shares on it. Now I have removed server 1 from service and each client is once again complaining that it cannot sync to it. However in mobsync it only shows server 2 and it syncs with that correctly. I cannot figure out how to tell it never again sync to server 1. Now to fix it (and this is a hack job) I changed the IP for server 1 in dns. I made server 1 ips the same as server 2, so the error on the clients went away. However I would like to fix it correctly.
