Logon Scripts

    I'm not quite sure that this belongs in this group, so please bear
    with me.

    We run Server 2003, SP2. We have two (2) Domain Controllers ( DCs ),
    approx two (2) dozen plus VMware servers, and a couple more pysical
    servers besides our DCs. We use Backup Exec v12.5 to back up our
    servers.

    Last week I had occasion to...ahhh...fix an error I had made. I went
    to my backups, and restored BOTH DCs to a different location. I
    wanted to retrieve all my logon scripts.

    Imagine my surprise, when my backups retrieved...NOTHING. Well, okay,
    techically not nothing. I mean it appears that everything on both DCs
    did restore. Everything EXCEPT my logon scripts. In fact, the SYSVOL
    folder is the last folder/file down the tree that did restore.
    Anything BELOW SYSVOL, nada, zip, zilch. So...

    Now I'm trying to determine if this is normal, or I have some sort of
    problem that I need to fix.

    ( I currently can't get onto Symantec's forums, as I have in the past,
    so I don't know what they [would] say about this. )

    Is it 'normal' that I cannot back up my logon scripts, so that any
    restore won't get them? Or do you think that I have a Backup Exec
    issue?

    Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance,

    Tom

  2. Hello TCS,

    If you make a full server backup or at least the system state it should include
    of course the complete sysvol folders with content. SO maybe it is within
    BE. Use ntbackup to have a system state backup and see what it contains after
    restore.

    Best regards
