Hi All,

We're really having problems with Offline Files/Folders and Vista sp1

We working with Microsoft just now to debug this as we're registered
partners (for testing Samba/LDAP etc.). We now have a massive thread
going in the private Vista 4-hr response support forums and we're on
to log files debugging Vista side. We've cleared CSC etc. applied the


We applied the registry patch and oplocks settings (even though most
are on by default). The map settings olny allowed directories to be
shown for some reason though, so we disabled. For now the customer has
switched back to doing offline files against a Vista Desktop that is
sharing out folders and there are no .tmp files being created anymore,
so must be something Samba side.

We also compiled up 3.2.7 and are now running it in the hope 3.0.28a
is somehow missing the patch that Jeremy did in 2007 to fix this

Anyone come across this before?

We'll keep you updated when we here more back from Microsoft Technical
support and hopefully get this resolved for others.
