vista sync

By ljefabien ·
I started having synchronization isues lately form vista clients with my file server(windows 2003 R2).
The excel file residing on the server is made accessible (read write modify) to the clients in my LAN.
Whenever a vista client modify the data,the changes are not seen from another vista machine or xp client.
Whereas if it's an xp client doing the change, everyone can see it.
I have a gpo disabling offline files on the domain,this policy was here before i took over the network. Am not sure if that is creating the problem, because it's been working fine before.
Any recommendation or solution will be highly appreciated

possible fix

by ljefabien In reply to vista sync

After having verified the GPO's(within which offline files are disabled) i noticed that the properties of the shared folder where the excel file resides were still set as be available offline.Which seems a bit odd.I just set it do be as not being available offline and this worked.
What i had to do was to make sure each vista ckient sync their files with the server and did a restart.As mentioned, XP clients were not affected.HOPE THIS WILL HELP OTHERS in regard to this issue of sync in vista.
