Offline files going offline !!!!!!!!!!!

  • 1. Hiding/disabling services effects.
    I called the Sprint support folks because my air card was disconnecting and not reconnecting even though it was in NDIS mode. Finally their tech support people got involved and suggested that I do the following. Run msconfig. Hide all MS services. Disable all. Apply. Restart. Run msconfig. Enable all. Restart. The connection manager is auto starting. What effect will temporarily disabling services have? Thanks, jh

Anyway not being an MSCE I did some research myself and have now solved the problem.

  • 4. Minor glitch(?) when starting IrfanView
    I'm using IrfanView 3.99 on my Windows XP SP2 desktop computer. I've been using IrfanView for about four years and find it quite useful. Just recently, I noticed a very minor but peculiar glitch: when I launch IrfanView from my Quick Launch toolbar, the program takes about 5 seconds to load. Normally, it would launch immediately. Other shortcut programs on my Quick Launch toolbar start normally. My computer is fairly new, Pentium D processor at 3.0Ghz, 2GB of system RAM. There is also a slight delay in starting IrfanView when I launch it from a desktop icon. Any ideas why the program suddenly has this delay? I emailed the creator of IrfanView, who was kind enough to respond. However, his suggestion was not able to fix this.

Offline files going offline !!!!!!!!!!!

Postby JM » Tue, 27 Jul 2004 23:17:53 GMT

Win 2000 Domain, I have a problem with IBM T-40 Laptops 
(Win XP Pro)and offline files. Offline files will 
disconnect then reconnect at any time while loged into 
the network. IBM offers no help, Microsoft points to IBM 
as the problem. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

1.offline files go offline after a while

My offline files just seem to go 'off line' all the time. When they go 
offline, the offline folders (which are mapped as drives) only show the 
files that are available offline, and don't try to reconnect.

Possibly my offline files are going offline because of Idle Session Timeout.

On the Server (SBS 2003), at the command line, NET CONFIG SERVER shows

Idle session time (min)    15

This would suggest that if I don't use the network shares for 15 minutes, 
they are automatically disconnected.
And that browsing an offline folder does not cause a reconnect.

Is this likely to be the problem? Should I change this setting?

If I futz around with a UNC path to a different folder, I can reconnect, and 
the offline folders reconnect.

This is dysfunctional. I would like to have some offline files in some 
offline file folders, but when I am connected I would like to see all of the 
files in the server folder.

I don't see other people asking about this problem.  Am I the only person in 
the world who has not shared "all files and folders" in the offline folder? 
If not,

any suggestions what should I do to fix this?


2.Offline files - going offline unnecessarily

Have a Windows 2000 Server Appliance Kit box as a fileserver. Mapping to
share(s) on this server using DFS in an Active Directory environment.
(\\domain.tld\path\to\something) Everything seems to work just fine, with
the exception of offline files.

I have redirected My Documents onto the file server, on both my desktop
machine and a tablet PC. (So they have the same copy of My Documents.) The
desktop machine and the file server are always on the same subnet, connected
via different ethernet switches. Both run 100Mbps/Full-duplex. Periodically
my desktop machine goes offline for no discernable reason. I can make it go
offline by opening a Windows search window and searching for anything on all
local hard drives. (There's a short delay, the offline files balloon pops
up, then the search starts.) I can always reconnect by double-clicking the
offline icon and hitting OK.

I have three network drives mapped, all using DFS, all conincidentally
hosted by the same file server. The only item I have set to use offline is a
MyDocuments folder on one of the drives.

All I can think of that might cause this is a network condition, but that
seems a dubious possibility. I also tried bumping up the slow link value to
various values up to '10240' (1Mb).

Any other suggestions?

PS: What's the best way to suggest to Microsoft that individual shares go
offline and not an entire server? Or that Offline Files become DFS-aware?
i.e. when one of my DFS shares goes offline, they all do, because they are
all on \\domain.tld.

3.Offline files - Working offline, what is going on?

I have a couple laptops that are giving me fits.

Windows XP Pro SP3 and up to day.
This was happening long before I installed SP3
File server is 2003 Server.

They keep going "Off line".

There's a little pop-up balloon that pops up and says:
"Offline files - Working offline
You are no longer connected to 'MyServerName'. You can continue working 
Click this icon to view status."

I've made this setting change:
Windows Explorer\Tools\Folder Options, Offline Files tab, Advanced button.
Set to "Never allow my computer to go offline.

I found this information is NewGroup past, but don't know if it's relevent:
This is 100% the SMB signing bug inhtroduced with XP SP1.  The workaround 
was contained in KB article #331519,
but Microsoft just recently yanked the article with no word, and has 
provided no substitute fix. Call MS, quote the article, and get it fixed. 
It has to do with turning off all digital signing on your 2k domain 

At one point I thought it was because they had their wireless NIC on at the 
same time their LAN NIC was on, but that doesn't seem to be it.

I also thought it might be Symantech's antivirus, but we tried disabling 
that and the laptop still goes in to offline mode.

Anyone have an idea what I should be looking for to resolve this???


4.Keep offline files from going offline with slow connection

I am having a hard time keeping systems from going off line when
connected via VPN or even a 10 meg (or better even) wireless. We need
off line files enabled, but ONLY when they are really off line. I
tried setting the GPO for the "Configure slow link speed" to 1 so that
even if it is a 1k connection it will still stay on line, but they
still go off line when on VPN or wireless. Again, it's not even slow
connections that it is doing this with, so I'm a bit lost...

Any idea what I can do about this?

5.Offline Files - Computer keeps going offline

My computer keeps going into offline state even though I 
am still connected to the local area network.  If I 
syncronize it will reconnect fine.  Any ideas how to keep 
it online?
