Start up script woes.

By kyle ·
Hey guys, i made a very simple little .bat file to test GPO logon/start up scripts, normally i'd just assign a script to the user through going to their preferences and entering in the logon.bat file in their logon script box.

but i need to use start up scripts for another chore i have, but i have a slight problem, they don't work. i had assigned an OU a group policy, i went to the GPO's properties and added a computer to the security settings, so it reads/applys the GPO then went in and set two files for it. The startup script .bat file is supposed to make a directory in root C (just to test if it works)

mkdir C:\Startup

then i made one for the logon script.

mkdir C:\logon

now, even though i set the computer to read/apply the GPO in the GPO's Security tab, it will only apply the logon script, not the start up script.

anyone have any ideas why?

My guess is that one is running under the system account and the other is running under the user account when the scripts run.

The user probably does not have rights to create the directory on the "C" drive.

Not sure, but something maybe to look at.
