Files not showing up in networked drive - Fix with Group Policy?

    Question

  • Hello,


    We recently fixed the issue described in this thread using the steps provided below. I am wondering if there is a way to make the below registry changes to all of the workstations in our office using Group Policy?

    Or do I need to add these values manually using a .reg to each machine, then changing DontRefresh value to 0.

    Steps:

    Create registry keys below to control the cache lifetime:
    Under
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentcontrolSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters:
    * FileinfoCacheLifetime
    * FileNotFoundCacheLifetime
    * DirectoryCacheLifetime

    They are all REG_DWORD type in seconds.

    There is a DontRefresh key that should be set to 0
    - Open Registry Editor by typing into Start > regedit.exe (or open directly in C:\Windows\regedit.exe)
    - Hit Ctrl+F for the search dialog, type "DontRefresh", hit Enter
    - After waiting a couple of seconds, the search finds one result: 'DontRefresh REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1)"
    - Double click on DontRefresh and change 1 to 0.
    - reboot your PC afterwards.



    Thanks in advance for your help!
