Formerly known as "Jimmy Shelter".

Then one appeared among us, in our own form visible, but greater and more beautiful; and he said that he had come out of pity.

I'm like the Clint Eastwood of backups. I drift into town, say "ahm-a gonna clean up yer backups", shoot the place up a bit, get rid of the bad guys, then drift back out again.

Been there, done that, still doing it.

No misconfiguration really, it's not actually an error on your setup, and is only relevant if you're using WINS/NetBIOS on your network.

+1 to both Tom and Robert here. The audit trail is very important, especially if the person is leaving against their will and does something naughty before they go.

comment Workstation file synchronization to deploy though a group policy
Exactly what I was gonna suggest. You can configure your redirection policy to move anything on the PC back to the server first time too. I think offline files might be OK if you're happy to live within it's limitations (I've seen MS guys use it before and they seemed OK with it). I wouldn't advise using it unless you know that you have to though.
