I have a W2K3 active directory with XPsp3 clients fully patched, I have folder redirection (my documents, desktop, app data) with offline files enabled by default. Connected to our network (wired/wireless), everything works fine. My users will take their notebooks home, leaving wireless cards enabled from their time at on site, and we start having problems. Logon is slower, which is understood as the computer is trying to find the DC. When the user gets logged in an error message "the folder \\servername\share\username\desktop could not be found" and desktop, my docs, and app data info are not working. There are two shares, Disconnected Network Drive which is not available and the username on \\servername\share that is defined in AD my home folder which contains my redirected folder cache and all files are available. If I allow a client computer to go into sleep mode and log back in, everything is working as designed. I can replicate this problem so I'm sure its not one client in particular or hardware related. We are not using and VPN connection for file synchronization off site. Attached are pictures of my error messages. Any help or advice is appreciated.
