SBS2003 Offline Files popup all the time
Posted on 2009-02-13
In April 2008 we bit the bullet and upgraded from our small P2P network to SBS2003.
We got a contractor to build and configure the server and install. Everything was fine until Xmas, when we had issues with DNS. I managed to resolve the issues (constantly kicking people off the network) but I introduced some Exchange issues, again I managed to resolve them but now there are few things that just dont seem right.
These small things are starting to become a little worse, I seem to be the most affected by these issues.
I keep getting the offline files balloon pop up and therefore lose all network drives, I click OK to syncronise straight away and everything is fine. However this is happening more and more, and it has started to happen to more people now.
We all run Windows XP SP3; the only other hardware involved is a Netgear Gigabit switch that connects all clients (10-15) to server. This was a 100Mbit switch but was upgraded at Xmas (thats when we got problems). Switch is working fine I know there are no issues with that as same problems occur when I change back to 100Mbit one.
All help is greatly appreciated.
