[Samba] Synchronizing offline files

Could you try this after upgrading to 2.2.4? There was a specific fix in
it that attempts to fix this problem.


-----Original Message-----

We have a Samba 2.2.3a server which serves files from NFS to a W2k
client. On the client, the user has selected to make a directory and
all subdirectories available offline.

Now, when the NFS file systems changes, the user selects "Synchronize"
on the top-level directory, and W2k very quickly determines that
nothing is to be done, and completes the synchronization. When the
client then goes offline, it turns out that not all files have been
copied to the client; many files have been ignored.

Can anybody propose a solution for that problem?
