Active Directory Batch files

By JimKlallsoo ·
We have over 1000 users on our network.
We have a variety of batch files associated to users logins.
Default.bat should be the minimum batch file all usr's get. However, Managers etc will have Man.bat instead of default.bat

When new users have been added to AD sometimes Admins haven't added the default.bat to the new user when they were created.

It took me all day to go through AD today trying to see who had a batch file running against their login. I found that 90% of users did have a batch file associated to their login, however the process was extremely slow and laborious having to open each users profile in AD right clicking profile and checking to see if they had default.bat or not.


Question 1 - Is there anyway quick way i can check AD to see who is running a batch file and who isn't?

Question 2 -Is there anyway to customise a user to receive default.bat when they are created in AD rather than doing it manually?

you shouldn't be doing this per user, it should be done using OUs

I agree that this should be set via Group Policy Object linked to the Organizational Unit.

You can specify this in the setting Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Scripts/Startup.

By setting this policy at the OU level, all user accounts placed in the OU will get the script setting.

Enjoy!
