Kixtart scripting not working in NT/Novell environment.

Environment:
Windows 98 Clients.
2 x Windows NT 4.0 SP5 servers. One PDC One BDC.
2 x Windows NT 4.0 Terminal servers. Both BDCs.
1 x Novell Netware v3.12 Server.

Client Primary Network Logon is the Novell Server.

I tested 1 userid, by doing the following:
            
Start1.Bat was created with the line "c:\kixtart\kix32".
Usermanager was modified so Logon Script=Start1.bat
The Kixtart files were copied to c:\Kixtart and to the
"\WINNT\system32\Repl\Import\Scripts" folder of the PDC and the BDC.
            
The script works when you execute Kix32 directly from explorer.

This setup did nothing. No indication of it even attempting to run the script.

I then ran KXRPC on both the PDC and BDC.
      No Change.
I then copied the Kixtart DLL files into the C:\Windows\System folder
      No Change.
I then copied Kix32.exe into the windows system folder and renamed it Lmscript.exe.
      No Change.

Can anyone advise what I'm doing wrong?????? This scripting on NT is frustrating...............kd

Do the 98 clients pick up ANY logon scripts at all ?

Does it work when you execute it from a command.xom on your W98 machine?
Kix is very picky about syntax, and does not report much errors.

If your primary logon is Netware, then your clients will run the Netware logon script, not the one located on your NT servers.

The clients run the "Novell" Login script fine.

Is it not possible to run the Novell login script then run the NT login script?

..unless you put a CALL \\ntserver\netlogon\logonscr.bat in the Novell login script ?

Hi, kduquett

The followings are acctually in Kix Doc, I think this is what you need.

You can run Kix32.exe from a batch file that is used as the logon script for the user. For example, if Kix32.exe is in the root directory of the NETLOGON share, the batch file might contain the following commands:

@ECHO OFF
%0\..\Kix32.exe

If you installed Kix32.exe on the client's local hard disk, you must refer to the local directory, for example: C:\Kixtart\Kix32.exe.

Note
Use of the syntax %0\..\ is discussed in Knowledge Base article Q121387.

Hope this help.

Cheers

Thanks Huben. I'll try that, however I may have found another solution. Dump the Novell server, the Novell client has seemingly caused us many a head scratching issue.

Thanks again guys for all your help....kd
