and i probably would have moved it if you had...it's kind of a both issue...but probably mostly windows related...anywho
...where do you have the login script located? on a file server?
most of the time with login scripts...best practice suggests putting the batch file in the sysvol folder of your domain controller....then in the user's profile..you just put the batch file's name (logon.bat or whatever)...not a full path...since the script is running at logon...the user technically doesn't have access permissions to any file server folders untill the logon process is complete...but the domain user does have access to the domain's sysvol folder during logon...this might make a difference
Thanks for the response. Yes, the logon scripts are going to reside on the domain controller, which is also the file server. I want to have a different script for each user to map their personal shared folder at logon. I just have a few more questions.
1. I attached an example of the text file to be converted to a batch file. Is the script in there written correctly? Like I said, I got it from a group policy logon script exercise, and it worked in group policy when I fooled around with it in vmware. If that worked, I figured it would work, if I just pointed to it from a user's profile tab.
2. I'll probably put the batch files in the sysvol folder as you suggested, but what exactly is the correct format for pointing to a batch file located anywhere on the domain controller especially, if it's buried in a few folders and subfolders?
3. Do I have to name the batch file logon.bat or can I call it whatever I want? I'm going to have to create a different batch file for each user, so it would be easier to give them specific names, especially if I were to put them all in the sysvol folder.
