Offline folders issue.
In the server (SBS 2003 R2) I have a folder with several sub-folders and
hundreds of files, The entire
folder is set to be available offline as they are all the
sub-folders and files. The problem is that some of these files are not
available when I go offline.
What is weird is that in Windows Explorer all the files, including the ones
that are not available, are marked with the green round logo with the two
yellow arrows indicating that they supposedly are available.
To make things more complicated and much worse is that if I right click on a
file/ click properties/ General tab the file show the above
mentioned logo; clicking the "Offline folders" tab the "Always
available offline" option is checked so people would assume that everything
is fine but under "Details" tab the file is listed as "Offline
Availability: Not available" and this is true, the file is not available!
Note that booting with XP the same file, in the same location, same Domain
etc. is available offline therefore is something specifically related to
Vista.
Another thing I noted is that all the files "really" available under
"Details" have, in the "Attribute" line a "A", the one not available do not
have it.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
Stefano

Re: Offline folders issue.
To close out this thread, after some investigation we have identified the
reason why Offline Files is failing. After reviewing the trace logs that
the customer sent, our developer concluded that the server never grants an
oplock
for the file. The confirmed that oplocks were disabled on the server.
Offline Files in Windows Vista cannot operate when
oplocks are disabled. Here are the two keys Jeff changed to make this work.

He added this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\MRXSmb\Parameters\
OplocksDisabled REG_DWORD 0

And he changed the following key (was set to 0 on his server)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\LanmanServer\Parameters
EnableOplocks REG_DWORD 1

These keys are described in more detail at
