Logon Group Policy for Computers

By andrew.saenz ·
I know that you can have logon scripts for each user in an domain or ou, but what about for computers. I need everyone who logs on to these computers in a certain ou to run two seperate logon scripts. Other than going through local group policy, what else can I do to accomplish this?

create an OU to collect the computers you want to have the log on script to apply to. Create the GPO include the script for local machine policy/windows policy/log on script. Assign the GPO to the OU.

as always, to have the policy apply immediately either reboot the workstation or run secedit referesh local machine.

I have seen that the only kind of policy that you can apply to an OU of computers is a startup/shutdown script. That is not acceptable for the way that I am using it. I need the scripts to run at logon of each user, no matter what user.

Try to go to the members profile and define the logon script. Usually a vbs file.

Goto Active Directory Users and computers, double click the ou, select the user and right click, select properties, and then select profile. Add the script location in the logon script space provided

well you said log on scripts for computers. then you go on to say :

So, you said you know about logon scripts for users, I'll have to say you've already answered your own question. Computers don't log on per se, they make a physical and datalink layer connection. Users log on to the network.

so if you need a log on script to run for users in an OU, as Willem said, you just create the GPO with the script for users in the users settings section of the GP, apply the GPO to the OU.
