FCI: Classification tab on windows 10 client does not refresh

Pascal Schori 1 Reputation point

Hi there,

We implemented a FCI environment a customer site and he is really happy with the solution and wants to start using it in the whole company.

After we created some default resource properties for the client he wanted to change some names and stuff.

Now he is facing the problem, that his windows 10 clients have in the classification tab the old values of the classifications.

Reboot, gpupdate, FSRM Update ... nothing worked so far.

On the file server we see the correct version of the resource properties but not on the client.

If we use a fresh installed client we have the correct resource properties.

Is there some kind of cache or something which makes the client not check for the new resource properties which are promoted by the Administrative center and FSRM?

    Hi there,

    It seems that your FCI is not propagating to fetch new updates or classifications and hence the clients are struck with old values of the classifications. You can try to Verify that the files are classified and then try creating the classification rules.

    The below article sheds some insights about the whole process and you might get some valuable ideas to achieve your goal.
