Windows 7 - Sync - Always Available offline not showing


I am replacing some older laptops with newer laptops.  They both have Win 7 Pro.  On the new laptops I am trying to enable always available off line for a shared drive.  It works correctly on the older laptops.   I have enabled the offline on the new laptop under Sync Center.

The server I am connecting to is a Win Serv 2008r2 and other systems are able to share and the files are available offline.

When I click on a shared drive, then right click I do NOT see the option for Always Available Offline.  

I have disabled the offline files, rebooted and then enabled and rebooted.  No change.

Any thoughts of what to do next?
