logon sripts

By cnunez ·
hi,
I am trying to creat a logon script on a win2 professional pc. I want all users to get mapped drives on a win2k server. I am using net use on the workstations. I am creating the batch file on the server and saving it with .bat
I know that I have to go to computer manager and in put profile path, logon script, and connect to.
I am not sure what exacly to input to these boxes. I believe that this is where my problem lie. Can anyone give me a step by step describtion of this process?

You script batch file should go into

Sysvol\xxx.local\scripts

where xxx is the name of the server.

This is where Win2K server looks for scripts.

If the Win2K pro machine is part of the domain, that is where the login is looking for the login script.

So on the Win2K server, just put the batch file name in the login script box for the user. Do not put any path or drive letter.

Just the batch file name.

If you are using active directory, then you can assign login scripts as part of group policy - which means that it will be run by every user in that OU. That way, you don't have to do anything to the user accounts and the login script will be storedalong with the gpo object in AD. If you're not using AD, or just want to go the 'old fashioned route' then win2k is backward compatible. Assuming your dc's are win2k (as in nt4 the following share is read only), Browse to \\domaincontrollername\netlogon and place your script there - it will be replicated out to any other domain controllers. In the logon script path in the user account, type
\\%logonserver%\netlogon\myscript.bat

Unless you are configuring home drives or roaming profiles thenleave the other boxes alone.
