Anti Virus Update in Logon script

By dbowlin ·
I would like to have Norton Anti-Virus update happen in my logon script. I have located the file in a common area, and put the proper entry in the logon script. The problem is it only works when the Administrator is logging on. When a user logs on, the updater begins to run, but then fails. I assume this is some kind of rights issue. Where do I go to correct the rights? I am running NT server with NT workstations as clients. Thanks.

It sounds like the users don't have sufficient local rights on their NT workstations to run the update. The domain administrator account is also a local administrator but other local users would need beefed up priveleges. You could try adding the users to the local machines' power users group. That group has most administrative rights with some exceptions and are able to run more applications.

Thanks for your answer.

Obviously, I knew this was a rights issue. I didn't want to give away the store by assigning a higher level of local rights to users, they get into enough trouble as it is. Turns out that that it was specifically rights to the all users profile which I changed.

Either you have not set the users to be local admins of the WS, or the Virus updater requires greater access to the source files than you have given them.

To give local admin rights do this from your WS, run Usrmngr for domains, choose to controlanother domain and put the WS name in, ie \\ws123, double click administrators group in the lower window, and add the domain user for that system.
