    faza, you say your users home directories are not shared.. i assume then you are using this : \\server\home_share$\home_folder where home_share$ is where the share is?

    you need to check this share to ensure offline files is not active as stated by Geoff as well as your GPO settings for offline files.

    Yes that is correct ok, but when i done that i had the synchronisation arrows on the desktop icons to suggest that the folders are being synchronised.

    Re: XP {Profiles

    I have researched all yesterday afternoon abouty this issue and all thay it says is disabling the offline caching and to disable this object in Group Policy "\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files\Allow or Disallow"

    I have also enabled and disabled the prevent use offline files folders. But is still not making any difference.

    Currently our home directory in the Group Policy\\servername\users\yearx\homedirectory

    users - this is a shared folder with offline caching disabled
    yearx - is a specific folder for which year the child is in (Not Shared)
    homedirectory - the folder for the pupil (Not Shared)

    We have re-directed

    My Documetns - Same Location going to home directory
    Desktop - Specified Location
    Start Menu - Specified Location

    Any more ideas

    Faza,

    you say you have configured this in th computer config section of your GPO - have you done it in the user config as well?

    I've attached the GPMC dump of my policy for pupils for you to look thru.


    EDIT: Uploaded correct GPO!!

    The settings apply to the computer, not the user IIRC... that's how mine work anyway.

    Re: XP {Profiles

    Just looking through my Pupil GPO and noticed the following option:

    Do not automatically make redirected folders available offline

    Quote Originally Posted by Explanation
    All redirected shell folders, such as My Documents, Desktop, Start Menu, and Application Data, are available offline by default. This setting allows you to change this behavior so that redirected shell folders are not automatically available for offline use. However, users can still choose to make files and folders available offline themselves.

    If you enable this setting, the users must manually select the files they wish to be made available offline.

    If you disable this setting or do not configure it, redirected shell folders are automatically made available offline. All subfolders within the redirected folders are also made available offline.

    Note: This setting does not prevent files from being automatically cached if the network share is configured for "Automatic Caching", nor does it affect the availability of the "Make Available Offline" menu option in the user interface.

    Note: Do not enable this setting unless you are certain that users will not need access to all of their redirected files in the event that the network or server holding the redirected files becomes unavailable.
    Not sure if you have this enabled Faza - it's enabled in mine.

    IIRC when it was turned off here we also had to manually turn it off at each share ... or rather Stephen did ... something to do when he was bored I suppose :-)

    Re: XP {Profiles

    Thats really confusing! I have been following the thread, and i use roaming and don't have this problem, I have offline files disabled on everything possible and documents are set to an auto-redirect to the Home Drive, now ocassionally if its blips on logon it copies them back to the profile and remembers that change but its very rare. Have you tried logging on as an affected account and right clicking my documents and see where that is pointing to, it should be the letter of your Mapped Drive for the documents, if its C:\documents and settings\USERNAME\etc then somethings not applying somewhere along the way.

    Re: XP {Profiles

    Could it be something to do with in the Users profile under

    Profile Path - \\dibbler\users\yearx\username

    Home Folder connect h: \\dibbler\users\yearx\username

    Also witrhin Group Policy i have added the Office 2003 Group Policy object and set that to h:\ could that be affecting it.

    Faza, if you have GPMC installed can you run a GP Result on one of the workstations as a pupil and post the report so I can take a look at it - it's possible some of your GPO's aren't running as they should..

    Re: XP {Profiles

    Are refreshing your group policy properly before deciding the options don't work? Go to start, run, type GPUPDATE then restart the computer.

    My Documetns - Same Location going to home directory
    I don't quite understand what you mean here.
    Is your my documents definately redirected to a different location to your profile. So, for example:
    My profiles are set (on the object in AD Users and Computers) as
    \\server\pupilprofiles\username
    My documents is redirected (in group policy) to
    \\server\pupildocs\username
    (and it puts it in a my documents sub folder).

    You can also disable offline files directly on the share. You should do this for the profile directory regardless of whether you want to use offline files or not otherwise windows can get confused (as it copies them anyway using a different method).

    Yup that will be the problem by what you have put there your telling it to put your documents back in the profile as its the exact same path. You need to do what eean has said, a complete seperate location from the profile
