Some of my users, not all and not all the time, get this error when the logon script runs.  Microsoft recommends having service pack 4 or highter installed.  My servers are service pack 4 or higher and so are the workstations.  I am running Windows NT 4.0 with workstation.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Windows NT takes a little time to get all it's networking services running.  If your systems boot and you immediately attempt to login as soon as the login window appears, then perhaps the cached instructions to login are having difficulty accessing network resources when the script executes...

Can you possibly modify your script to "log" the login process and see what connection is failing?

It is failing to connect to one of our servers.  It says it can't net view a server.  However, immediately after the script ends, I use net use w: \\servername\folder and it maps correctly;  so, I am able to do it manually, but the script can not do it on its own for some reason.
