Login Script for Global Groups

By schrader ·
I'm administering an NT PDC and I have clients logging into the domain with a script. Unfortunately, all members apply the same script, no matter what group they belong to. I would like to know if there is a way to have a script execute only if you are part of a certain group. Is it intuitive to NT 4.0? Do I need a utility, and if so, what is the utility?

Thank you,

re: login scripts for global groups

I am not aware of a way to have a different script run based on your membership to a global group, however, I have some alternate suggestions.

1. In your ONE script, have the group membership of the user checked and have different parts of the script run depending on that group membership.

2. In User Manager for Domains, in the Environment Properties dialog box for each user, specify the exact script name that should be run for them. (tedious) Create template accounts for creating user accounts with specific properties...include the script name as part of the template.

3. Are the scripts doing something you could better be doing in a system policy or a roaming user profile. You can have mandatory profiles assigned to groups of users (but you still have to modify the existing user's Environment Profile dialog). System policies can definitely be assigned to a global group with little effort.

Katherine forgot to mention that to check for group membership you need a tool called IFMEMBER.EXE only available on the NT4.0 Server Resource Kit

Script Logic is the way to go. I run a network of 400 users and 10 different global groups and it has been working perfectly for us. www.scriptlogic.com .
