Win98 NT logon scripts

By dandrews ·
I am having a problem with NT logon scripts. I have done this numerous times without a problem until now. I have a win98 client logging into an NT server SP4/domain. I am using tcpip only on the client. Wins and DHCP are running on the server. However I do not have wins enabled on the client. Is this necessary for the logon script to run?
Thanks,
Dan

Is there only one domain controller? If not, the logon script has to be in the netlogon share of all domain controllers. If the user can logon onto the domain then the logon script should run. Do all users who logon to the Win98 machine have the problem? If not make sure the logon script is defined for the problem user in User Manager for Domains.

Let's not forget the basic's, the default pull for nt login scripts are winnt\system32\repl\import\scripts also windows 98 \95 computers don't reconize the .cmd extension you must use the .bat for their login scripts, don't laugh, I've seen this quite a few times boggle some people
Good Skill

Actually, and I have no idea why, the script started working on that machine yesterday. I hadn't even been over there yet. Thanks for your input.

I generally do not advocate the use of LMHOSTS, but if you do not want to use WINS, you might want to try it out. Just be aware, that this could be a maintenance nightmare if you put it on everything and at somepoint change an IP address or Server name.
