    After implementation of the server and all clients, is this default script
    necessary? What exactly is it doing by running
    \\%LOGONSERVER%\Clients\Setup\setup.exe /s %LOGONSERVER% ???? (BTW, I'm
    using %LOGONSERVER% just as an example instead of using my real server's name
    to avoid confusion). :)

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Tom,

    Technically "No" you don't need it after they are all setup.
    However I suggest leaving it so you don't forget to add it back when you add
    your next pc.

    If you leave the company or someone else sets up a pc after you, it will
    keep them from trying to figure out what's wrong.
    (I Try to keep Servers Standard as much as Possible, then the Next guy
    doesn't have to figure out what Custom jobs I've done)

    K.I.S.S is my Motto...

    You can search the web for other cool things to do with login scripts..
    Login Scripts are very Powerful way to customize a users experience...

    So My suggestion is to keep it...

  3. I _-*strongly*-_ suggest keeping this item. When the next SP for SBS comes
    out some SBS client component may be updated, the SBS login setup will
    automate this. The login script setup also controls all application program
    push to SBS clients. If you rely on the SBS installation push (as I do)
    rather than group policy enforcement of .msi's (I don't have MSI's for
    everything I push), the tool is valuable.

    KISS is also a motto I adhere to, the SBS login setup helps me.

    Great, thanks for the feedback, guys. I also like to K.I.S.S., but at the
    same time don't want to keep things around if they're not necessary. This is
    the info I needed, and wasn't aware that the next SP for SBS may use this
    script to distribute updates. These community forums are priceless!

    Thanks,
    Tom
