We have an AD (Windows Server 2003)with a number of laptops using offline folders for off-site work and generally this works flawlessly.
However, one user has a problem, whenever she's on-site everything works as it should. She has access to her desktop and the "My Documents" folder but as soon as she either logs off and leaves for home or just disconnects from the network everything disappears. When she reconnects there's a short delay while the laptop's getting an address from the DHCP server and then she's got access to all her files again.
I have tried to run mobsync.exe a number of times and it just flies through the synchronization without problem (but too fast to actually copy anything) and reports no failures, but when I look at her "Offline Files" folder it's empty.
Her desktop icons are also missing the blue/white arrow icon-overlay i.e. that seems to signify synchronized(-ing) files.
Once just before this weekend after a number of reboots and mobsyncs it out of the blue started doing a "real" synchronization, i.e. the sync. took quite som time while it copied her files back and forth between the laptop and the server, and she got the sync-overlay back on her desktop-icons and files. Now, she's back from the weekend and the overlay's missing again and she can't leave the network without losing her files again.
It seems to be tied to this specific user as I've tried to log her onto another identically configured laptop and the same error occurs. She's in the same OU as a number of other users who have no problems and her laptop is identical to 70+ other laptops on-site.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
