Offline folders keep going offline

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Adrian Marsh (NNTP), Aug 20, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    On my SBS network, I make use of Offline Folders within XP, mapped to
    shares on my SBS server (home areas etc).

    Its a simple LAN (one subnet, approx 60 PCs).

    CPU of the server is averaged at 10-20%.

    However for some reason, my PC and several others keep loosing
    connections to the shares, and put themselves in offline mode.

    I've checked the event logs of clients/servers, and don't see anything
    obvious.

    Any tips on debugging why this keeps happening?

    Adrian

  2. Sorry forgot to say:

    Using my PC as a template:

    - Desktop Machine (XP Pro, loads of RAM/CPU spare)
    - ICMP time to server is <1ms constantly

    Not sure what else triggers Offline files to kick in..

  3. Anyone have an idea for debugging this?
    Would adding a second DC help? Or making the share part of DFS and
    adding a second server?
