Getting rid of the 'Sync to Offline Server' and server that is not there anymore.
Posted on 2008-11-16
This is my PC i have an issue with.
Removed my PC from circulation about 3 months ago and used another one. During this time we re-installed our SBS2003 server and all is fine - However I now need to re-use my old PC and so have bought it back into the network.
Because the server was re-built from the ground up (even used a slightly different server name and domain name) the old PC required 're-connecting' to the new domain - All this is fine and all is running fine however - during the log on and log off when the server is 'SYNC'd the OLD server is in the sync list (along with the new one - which syncs fine) and this constantly fails (As you would expect it too)
There is constantly that little white PC icon in the bottom right and periodically I get the message saying the server is not available for re-connect.
if I hover over the icon I get the message - 'offline files - Computer(s) offline' - which I know it is as the server no longer exists.
My question is - how do I permenanetly remove the server from the list and how do I stop if from trying to Sync - I have tried the usual config options of removing the 'tick' from logo on and log off for Lan connection in the Synchronisation settings - but to no joy.
Can any one help me get rid of this forever please!!!!.
Thank you and Regards
