I'm doing something wrong, and I think I'm at the point where I need a fresh set of eyes because I'm missing something and I'm sure it's something very stupid/easy/silly.

I'm trying to setup login scripts for a small network area, and something isn't quite right. Here is what I am doing from start to finish....

  1. Ensure NETLOGON folder is shared, with EVERYONE having Read permissions (no other restrictive permissions, just higher for proper admin groups)
  2. Create script for each user, place in that directory
  3. Within profile tab for the user in AD, under login script I put the name of the script, such as "user.bat"
  4. When the user logs into their machine, nothing runs.
What gives? Assistance mucho appreciated.

Logon scripts go in C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL\sysvol\domain_name\scripts

Yeah, that is where NETLOGON points to. There is more amiss however, certain GPO settings aren't applying either. I'm in the process of fixing a few things which will hopefully fix my script issue too.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
