Problems with Offline Files in Windows 7

Hi there,

Wondering if anyone can help me. I have put 4 HP ProBook 6555b (Windows 7 64bit) into a brand new SBS2008 domain alone with a bunch of new desktops running Windows 7 32bit.

I have been plagued with problems with the laptops. Bootup is taking about 6-7 minutes. If we take the laptops out of their docks and re-dock them the connection site on "identifying" and will rarely reconnect. It takes a long time to open files from the file shares and from My Documents or the Desktop which are both re-directed.

So after a lot of trpoubleshooting, I have discovered that preformance is greatly improved by disabling offline files. Also I now notice that even when the PC's are reconnecting to the network, and internet access works fine, they will not go back online and we cannot access the file shares.

I have disabled all the overflow setting on the NIC cards, and disbles IPv6 completly. DNS looks fine. I do see errors in the logs (attached) and again it points to network issues.  Screenshot from LogsWe have no problems with the desktops and everything is conencted to the same switch.

Any sugestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Ross

Hi Ggntt,

So is the problem that after disabling offline files the laptops are still slow?

Offline files should be set to only cache at log off so they will not effect start-up. The start-up times you mentioned would be effected by something else. Can you give a little more explanation on the actual issue please?

We got rid of 64bit and went to 32bit - most problems resolved.
