Logon process

by SyscoKid In reply to Logon process

If you use a logon script, it begins to run, processing each command in turn. One command will be to call your Kistart script, and what ever comands are programmed there will run too.

Also, KiXtart can be started specifying "KIX32" as the logon script for a user.

One or more scriptfiles can be specified on the command line (eg: "KIX32 script1 script2"). Using it, you can conditionally display information, set environment variables, start programs, connect to network drives, read or edit the registry, and/or change the current drive and directory using a free format 'script language'.

Asyscokid headed you in the right direction but, I think it's important for you to know that the first thing that happens is your PDC authenticates you as having the right to access the network. Then the server script runs and based on admin criteria setup in the script your resource server, storage and other parameters your environment will be set. Check this site for assistance on Policies and Profiles.
