off topic - Losing Home Drive Mapping when connecting to external network. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • We just changed our home drive directories to a DFS namespace and mapped under the active directory profile.    i.e. \\something.com\network\users    We have offline folder synchronziation turned on.   It works fine when there is no external connection and fine on our network.   However when our users use an external network i.e. their home network or hotel network, they no longer see the mapped drive and hence do not see it in an offline mode.     This actually happens regardless if the offline folder synchronization is turned on or not.    Question is why is the mapping not going into a disconnect state?   Shouldn't it be doing that instead of disappearing entirely?
