I have a problem with a user using a laptop with Windows XP Pro SP3 coming in and out the office. The problem happens when the user is in the office connected to the LAN where the Windows 2003 SBS AD reside. Every now and then the user will receive an error message on his mapped My Documents folder that offline files - working offline you are no longer connected to server. That causes everything sharing wise to go offline, meaning if I open my computer and go to a mapped network drive the folder is empty. When I click on the task bar icon for the offline files and push a sync everything comes back. Its like the laptop is lossing connection to the AD even though he can browse the internet.
I have tried disabling and enabling the offline files. I have also tried increasing the offline storage to 10GB. I had the user reboot each time he connect the laptop to his docking station in the office, but nothing seems to help though.
Any idea why this is happening? I am starting to think Offline file sync is not a good feature. I have been having a lot of issues with it lately. Its a good concept, but holly cow how buggy and unpredictable it is.
Thanks for your help.
