Logon Script not running

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Alex Allen-Turl, Sep 20, 2004.

  1. Hey everyone,
    I've searched the internet for ages looking for a solution
    and im yet to find one, have migrated (not upgraded) from
    NT4 to a Windows 2003 machine, everything went well except
    the logon script doesn't run, not fails, just doesn't run
    all together.

    The file is called LOGON.BAT and just uses a set of
    "net use <drive letter> \\server\share" commands

    its currently in my \\server\NETLOGON\ share and has the
    right attributes set to it, because if you go from any
    machine to
    start -> run -> \\server\NETLOGON\LOGON.BAT
    it runs and creates all the mappings and runs fine

    So ive gone to Active Directory and set it to just
    'logon.bat' under User Profile -> Logon Script

    Ive also gone to
    Domain -> Properties -> Group Policy -> Edit -> Computer
    Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System ->
    Group Policy -> Scripts policy processing -> Enabled ->
    Allow processing across a slow network connection & Process
    even if the GPO have not changed

    ive also gone to
    Domain -> Properties -> Group Policy -> Edit -> User
    Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Scripts (Logon/Logoff)
    -> Logon and then done Show Files, pasted the logon.bat
    into there, then clicked Add and then selected the Logon.bat

    still no joy.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    very much appreciated

  2. Did you do it in the Default Domain Group Policy, NOT the default domain
    controller group policy?
