I'm running active directory and I wanted to create a login script just to set the time.  I have the script, but I don't know where to put it on the server so that I can set the users to use the script.  I found in help something to do with the Group Policies snap-in but I can't find that either, any Help?

Thanks

At your "PDC"/PDC emulator run the following command:

net time \ServerName.Domain.com /setsntp:"sundial.columbia.edu ntp0.cornell.edu"

Thats all one line. This sets the "PDC" to timesync with one of these external time servers. The other DC's in your domain will sync with the "PDC" and the users will get synced when they sign on.

Hope this helps.

That is a possible way to do it but I specifically want a login script, because other things will be added on later.  I just can't find where to put it.

Open up the Users and Computers MMC.Right click the domain and select properties. On the Group policy tab select Default Domain Policy and edit. You can add your scripts here. You have to have the appropriate rights.

Here is the Time sync section of our login script. It is great for syncing the time with the server but it was adding 5-10 seconds to the login so we REMed it out.
**************************
rem *** next line syncs the time on workstations to the serevr***
rem NET TIME /DOMAIN:MYCPA2.COM /SET /YES
**************************

This is where the Login script is located on our server:

\\SERVERNAME\SYSVOL\DOMAINNAME\scripts

Then from the server under Active Directory users and computers go into the properties of each user- click on the profile tab- in the login script feild put the name of your login script: script.bat or whatever. no need for the path just the name of the login script.

That is how out login script and time sync are set up.

Hope that helped.
