Continued Win98 logon failures in Win2k

By rr0s3 ·
This question is the continuation of an earlier post that remains unanswered.

My previous problem was that my Win98 clients were no longer retrieving their logon scripts (.BATs) after migrating to Win2k servers. They were fine under NT4.

I now have the scripts executing, but now the problem is that they seem to "hang", never successfully completing. The dos window says all tasks are completed in succession, but the Windows alert dialog informing you of the logon script being executed ("Please wait while NT Logon Script executes -> 'CANCEL') never goes away. The system will sit and wait and wait until it eventually stops responding. If I select cancel, no mappings get done.

My second problem is that the mapping to the users home folders specified in their User Profile is also not being executed. (Mapping drive Z: to \\server\homefolderpath)

Need some help...

Continued Win98 logon failures in Win2k

I'm not sure about your first new problem. I got out login scripts working by doing it the same way. Our window automatically closes after a few seconds. Did you type exit as the last line in your .bat file?

As for the second problem... this will not work in wondows 95/98. That feature will only be executed on machines with Windows 2000/XP. I know it sucks, but we also are having the same problem.

I do have an EXIT command as the last line in my .BAT. The script window executes, echos that all commands are executed successfully then closes. The alert window is the one that won't close and explorer won't load until it does. When I hit 'cancel' to close it, explorer loads but then none of the mappings are retained.

Sorry to say it, but the first problem is the bigger of the 2. And if I could get my logon scripts to run reliably, mapping the home folders would be even less of an issue.

Thanks for the info, but still needing some guidance.

A sample of my USER.BAT file:
===========================================

@Echo OFF
CLS

:Time Sync
Echo Syncing time with network time server...
NET TIME \\server1 /set /yes

rive I
Echo Mapping dBase data folder...
NET USE I: \\server1\data

rive Z
Echo Mapping users personal folder...
NET USE I: \\server1\users

:End
EXIT

===========================================

that's it... this fails in the way described in my question on EVERY win98 client I have.
