Offline Files looking to sync up with old server (swing migration)

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
We did a Swing Migration from one SBS2003 server to another. Demoted the old server and took it out of AD completely. We have a few workers who work from home and they use offline files to sync their files however no matter what we do the laptops are still looking for the old server even though it is no longer in AD at all.

They do see the new server however it is always saying working offline because for some reason they still want to sync with the old server. We have tried to clear the cache, turn off offline files and turn them back on but no matter what we cant get them to stop looking for the old server.

Any thoughts would be great
