Offline Files

I'm trying to implement the use of Offline Files for Windows XP, Win 7 users.

My server is a Windows 2003 Server R2. I've shared a folder and mapped that folder to the client's PC.

The Windows 2003 Server is a Domain Controller and the client's PC is part of the domain.

Now on the client's Windows XP PC, I have enabled Offline Files.

Now when I shut down the Domain Controller, and log in to Windows XP Client PC with a log in name registered on the Domain Controller, I am able to access the offline files from the shared folder on the DC. But after I make changes, I'm unable to save those changes. Why is this?

I then have to go into the Domain Controller and give the user FULL RIGHTS to that folder and only then they can save changes to their offline files.

How can I prevent giving full rights to the user, and yet allow the user to make changes to the offline files and save these changes, and then the moment the log on to the Domain Controller, the synchronization takes please?

Second question that I have is.....will the changes made offline always over-right the copy on the server?

What happens if you have two users who have made different changes to the same file, and the moment the log on to the Domain Controller, which user's changes will be accepted?

Hello,

Syncronization settings determine which version is used (the offline or the online), and if the online file has changed since you received your offline version, and have since modified it, a conflict resolution dialog box should pop up.  From there you can select the option you want to use for each conflict.

The permissions issue unfortunately sounds more like just the way it works.  Here a link with the required permissions:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2512089

Thanks,
Chris
