    I have windows server 2003, the clients are Win XP - all are updated.
    The disks are mapped using "net use ..." in a bat file.
    Sometimes the win xp client don't have any driveletters to the mapped disks
    afther a logon and can't start apps on the shared disks.
    They doubleclick on an icon pointing to the logonscript - then everything is

    Can you help mee troubleskoot this case - I have little info and no
    eventfiles now.

  2. Hello Tor-Magne,

    Have you enabled the policy "Always wait for the network at computer startup
    and logon" in a GPO.

    Best regards

  3. Modify your logon script as below, then examine c:\test.txt after the user
    reports a problem. Remember to remove the logging instructions after you've
    solved your problem!
    @echo off
    echo %date% %time% %UserName% >> c:\test.txt
    net use S: \\YourServer\Sales 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
    net use T: \\YourServer\Transport 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
    net use 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
    echo. >>c:\test.txt
