Hi Darren,

Great tips.

I had to setup a laptop to simulate an old connection and tried your
suggestion. It is through Windows Explorer, Tools, Folder Options and
Offline Files tab.

It worked perfectly.

I am yet to try on one of the sales user's laptop but I think it should
work.

Many thanks,

Pankaj

Have you tried a hard reset of the offline file cache on the local machines?
You can do that by holding down CTRL-SHIFT when you press the button that
says Remove Offline Files (or something like that --recalling from memory
here).

Subject: [gptalk] Folder Redirection - trying to connect to old Server


Our File Server has been upgraded to a new one and I am having problem with
the old folder redirection settings. 

I have changed the GPO to point to the new Server and the folder redirection
is working alright with offline file synchronization enabled. However, the
users on all our laptops are still trying to connect the old server for
offline file synchronization as well.

I have gone to through the synchronization settings and unchecked the
settings that were pointing to the old Server by logging in as local
administrator as well as the user themselves. I have also deleted the old
offline files that were pointing to the old server but still no luck.

Are there registry entries that I have to disable or did I miss something
important? 

Our DC is Win 2K3 and laptops are XP SP2.

Kindly help.

Regards,

Pankaj
