When offline files on client machines fail after a SBS migration to EBS

Filed under: EBS — WITS-SR @ 2:40 pm

We found that on some of our XP and Vista workstations after the migration to SBS there were still some errors as the machines were looking to the old SBS for its offline files.

We found the safest way to repair the issue was to follow this kb http://support.microsoft.com/kb/230738 for XP

In Folder Options, on the Offline Files tab, press CTRL+SHIFT, and then click Delete Files. The following message appears:

The Offline Files cache on the local computer will be re-initialized. Any changes that have not been synchronized with computers on the network will be lost. Any files or folders made available offline will no longer be available offline. A computer restart is required.
Do you wish to re-initialize the cache?
Click Yes two times to restart the computer.


In Vista based on these kb’s http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937475 which points to http://blogs.technet.com/filecab/archive/2006/12/12/moving-the-offline-files-cache-in-windows-vista.aspx
