Files There but not showing in explorer | Windows 2008 R2 File Server
Posted on 2011-05-11
We are having trouble with a 2008 R2 File Server. We are part of a Multi-Domain Environment and just transitioned our File storage from 2003 R2 to 2008 R2.
We have a Web Application that creates documents for our employees.
When the Documents are created the employees click a link: file://fileserver/Shared$/FolderWithFiles.
The Files that the server created are not showing there... However, If you go directly to the file server (The Same Folder on the physical box: f:\Shared\FolderWithFiles The Files are there.
The Domain that the File Server is in is not the same domain the User Machines are in, However the Domains have 2 Way access so Authentication has not been an issue.
All Client machines are Windows 7 Pro. The client Machines are Set to show "Hidden and System Files"
ALSO TO NOTE: After about 15 Minutes, The Employee can click the file:// Link again and the files will be listed.
Along with this, Another employee will sometimes be able to browse to the same folder and see the Files Immediately....
I am lost.. Any Suggestions would be grateful
