That's correct, Darren. The laptop is tremendously slow when not on the network and any install defaults to look for the users network share area. ________________________________ From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Darren Mar-Elia Sent: Thursday, July 12, 2007 3:19 PM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Re: Laptop issue Tom- What issue, exactly, are you having when users are offline? Are installs or updates failing because the network share is not available? Darren From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Tom Strader Sent: Thursday, July 12, 2007 12:06 PM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Laptop issue List members, We have one Group policy defined within our network. All laptops and workstations are under this GP. We started seeing issues with the Laptops and their "My Documents" directory. In the GP, the " My Document" directory on all workstations is redirected to the users file area, exp: \\server\users\username <file:///\\server\users\username> When the laptops are off the network and the laptop owner wishes to install or update something, it still points to the network share. The simple answer is to remove the laptops from under that GP, but I would like to design it so the "My Documents" area is still pointing to the network share when they return to the network. What's the best way to handle this?
