We have some laptop users and we really do not want to use the Windows Sync function. Seemed to have issues with that so want to make something a bit more custom.. The users Mydocuments folder is stored on their local laptop - we want to take a copy (where changes have happened) but only if the are in the office.
When they are in the office their IP address will be either 192.168.50.X 192.168.51.X or 192.168.52.X. - X obviously will change between .1 - .254
I want to add a little script to the shutdown in group policy which does the following.
1. Check the IP address of the machine, this could be "Local Area Connection" or "Wireless Network Connection"
2. If the IP is within these ranges then I want to say: copy all files from %UserProfile%\My Documents to M:\backup\MyDocuments
3. Copy %UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\ *.NK2 and *.pst files to M:\backup\mailarchive\
If the machine IP address is not in the range its safe to presume they are not in office and just let the script die.
When it copies the files it should only copy files which are new or have chaged rather than copying over everything.
Ideally I would like to show some type of popup saying "backing up files now" while the process is running, so that the users know its doing something.
Wow, this quite a task now I write it out, I started looking at how to get the IP address...There seems to be a bit of debate here:
Please could someone help get me started here
