Here's a problem I've been working on for the last two days, and I have yet to find a solution. Any help is greatly appreciated. Currently, we are using Windows Server 2003 Standard, and all of our clients are XP Professional.
We recently decided to start using Folder Direction via GPO on our laptop users. We are redirecting their desktops and My Docs to a folder on a file server. The root folder is shared and Domain Users has full control. Within the root folder, each user has a folder where the desktop and My Docs directories exist.
Here's the issue we're running into: synchronization is only going one way. If a user is offline, and they create/edit a file, this file will get uploaded/updated on the server. However, if the user is ONLINE, and creates/edits a file, those changes are NOT reflected when the user goes offline and is viewing their offline folder files. Effectively, any work a user does while online to any documents on their desktop or within their My Docs folder is unavailable offline, which I'm sure I don't have to say, is a huge problem.
I've been slamming my head against my desk trying to figure this out. Does anyone have any insight as to why this may be happening?
