We had an issue with Small Business Server 2011 today - the machine went down and was down for about an hour. I have Folder Redirection and Offline Files configured, however when a client machine on the network (desktops and laptops) tried to access their documents, their documents folder was empty. These are all Windows 7 clients.
When the server came back up, they had to log off, and back on in order to see their documents.
I had thought I configured Offline files and folders correctly to make these files and folders available on server disconnect, however it didn't appear to work.
Am I missing a GPO setting somewhere? I need to ensure that if the server goes down, the users documents are still available offline.
