- The machine is connected to our domain (2003 level).
- H: is mapped to the users' home directory on our file server (2003 Server R2). The mapping is done through the profile tab for the user in Active Directory.
- "Documents" and "Desktop" are redirected to H:\Documents and H:\Desktop via group policy.
Another issue I'm having is that if I pull the network cable, the folders go offline and I can continue to work on documents as well as save new ones, but when I reconnect the network cable, it doesn't go online again. Even logging out and in again doesn't help. In order to get back online, I need to restart the computer. And even then, when I login, it won't synchronize automatically. I still have to force the sync by right-clicking each folder and hitting synchronize.
It should be noted that after re-connecting the network cable, it appears the computer doesn't even have connectivity with our domain. For example, running gpupdate results in an error about not being able to contact the domain controller. What's up with that?
Any help would be appreciated.
