Changing Document Redirects and Offline Files
I'm looking at changing the document redirects at one of my schools but I've got a few concerns with doing it.
My plan is to change from \\server\users\pupils\%username%\documents to \\domain.local\users\pupils\%username%\documents which will be the DFS path to the same folder.
I'm relatively happy that the redirect change wont take to long to apply and because of simply being a new path to the same thing its not too bad if it takes it weeks to filter out 100%.
My BIG concern is offline files. ALL the staff use it all the time and I can see potential issues in how it handles the path change.
I can see this happening:
- Laptop arrives in school has a bunch of un synced changes
- during logon the new path is picked up from group policy
- offline files starts up and then does nothing because it has no local copy of $new_path
Has anyone done this before? Do you know how offline files handles the document redirect changing whilst it has unsynced local files?
