Logon Script Problem

By PC Troubleshooting ·
I am running a Windows 2000 Server SP4 domain with a mix of Win98SE and WinXP Pro SP1 systems.

I am trying to set up a login script that will map certain network drives. I am using simple NET USE commands in the batch script.

When I log in on the Win98SE systems, the login script runs perfectly, but when I login on the WinXP systems, the script doesn?t run at all.

When I try to run the script manually, everything works alright.

If anyone has an explanation of fix for this problem, please let me know.

Logon Script Problem

There is not really enough information to trouble shoot this but we can merely go over the steps, in the user properties on the server the login script is called login.bat or whatever and the login file is located in the netlonon share on the server, that way you know all permissions for clients will be correct opposed to putting the login file in some custom location and putting the full path in the user lgin properties

If I am not mistaken, these clients get their logon info from 2 different folders. Older OS's look to the netlogon share, and the newer ones like Win2K & XP look to the sysvol share. Make sure your script info shows up in both.

Good luck,
