Dont need the Tab visible.... Not as easy as simple reinitializing, as that doesnt remove the share references.....

Workstation tries to synch offline files with old server which is offline.

See my accepted solution in the above link. The commands are already formatted for a batch script if needed to deploy to the masses....
