Login Scripts

By frec1 ·
Are logon scripts worth the effort in NT 4.0 for security reasons or is it better just to set rights to folders? Is there a good site which walks through this process. Thanks yawl.

Login Scripts

In my experience, profiles are of more use for masnaging security - if by security you mean restricting the user's ability to take actions. Login scripts are useful though. We use ours to map drives and force the anti-virus definition updates. The default directory for scripts is WINNT\SYSTEM32\REPL\IMPORT\SCRIPTS. To use, create a batch job and put it on the script line of the user profile. Most books on NT Admisntration talk about scripts.

We use login scripts for a variety of tasks. From updating our Anti-Virus software, updating hosts & lmhosts files, launching our corporate Intranet, mapping network drives, connecting network printers... The possiblities are endless. I would be happy to send you an example.

I believe that setting the folder rights would be better for security. Logon scripts would be more suited for things such as setting up common drive mappings and printer settings.

Of course, everything depends on the particular environment you're working with.
