Windows Server 2008 R2/Windows 7 Clients: Some Users Cannot see some files which are in a share, some can.
Posted on 2011-09-15
I work for an education company with mutliple classroom environments.
The Classroom server is running Server 2008 R2, and the clients are running windows 7. A share exists on the server. If files are copied in to this share either locally on the server or via the clients, some clients cannot see the files appear in the share, and some can. If the user logs out and logs back in again, the files appear. All users are members of the same security group.
I find this strange that it only affects some machines, considering all the machines are built exactly the same (apart from some small hardware differences).
I thought it might be something to do with ABE or Offline file caching on the share, so diabled both of these, but the same issue occurs.
Any help would be appreciated.
