I currently have a 2003 enterprise server and my staff laptops synchronize
with the home folder specified in active directory.

Over the summer i have installed a new domain controller and moved all the
work folders onto this server and also specified in AD that the user uses the
new work folder, then i copied all the work from the old server to the new
server.

The problem i have is when all my staff come back and try to sync and it
doesnt update the new folders on the new server

If you are using folder redirection and you change the target, you may have
to reset the cache on the clients:

Thanks Doug,

Problem is i work in a school and all the teachers are off until the 1st
September and i it will be so much hasle for me to explain to them what to do
when they come back, i was just wondering if there was any way that i could
set it up that it just sychronizes with the new location as soon as they come
in and log on

Cheers
Phil
