Folder redirection, offline files, DFS, kitchen sink,..
I'm playing with XP SP3 folder redirection to DFS(R) shares and specifically right now, offline files i.e. best way to ensure Alice gets her files sync'd and useable at home on Laptop A, but when she lends it to Bob he doesn't get any syncing at all and thus we avoid the access denieds during sync and so on...
One approach I'm just trying is to turn off the automatic syncing for redirected folders and do it manually via logon/off script e.g. only sync if current user is allowed to on this box (lots of ways to flag that) and we're on our LAN. Alternatively there's the PrimaryUsers reg value assuming that still works on SP3(?), but that's not as good because you'll still get the Sync running and complaining when the machine is at home.
Anyway, has anyone ever come across a really good 'best practice' kind of doc for this area? Or perhaps what you do works really well, keeps the users happy, never breaks(!) etc.?
