I understand about the configuration options on the Windows side, but what
my problem is that no matter what I setup on the windows side, the clients
do not behave properly with offline files from my Samba server. If I set
them offline from a windows server, there is no problem. I only have
issues when I make a samba share available offline. I need to make every
user's home directory available offline for laptop travel, but I can't get
the system to work.
I am really starting to think this is a bug in my version of Samba.
Thanks! -Cheers, Peter.

Re: [Samba] [Repost] Offline Files
there is only one parameter in smb.conf
with offline files to a share
from man smb.conf
csc policy (S)
This stands for client-side caching policy, and specifies how
clients capable of offline caching will cache the files in the share.
The valid values are: manual, documents, programs, disable.
These values correspond to those used on Windows servers.
For example, shares containing roaming profiles can have offline
caching disabled using csc policy = disable.
Default: csc policy = manual
Example: csc policy = programs
but if you wanna fine tune i.e by users/groups/host etc you have
to do this with NTconfig.pol in the netlogon share created by
poledit.exe which is more flexible
so would say use csc policy = manual in your conf so it depends to users
entries when or what offline sync in a share, but i dont think this is a
good idea at the profiles share ( as i saw it in your conf ,i use
disable here )
