Windows 2000 Group Policy based Logon Scripts not working...
Posted on 2003-03-18
pure Win2k (server & desktop)
AD enabled, single domain
logon scripts placed in domain controller's logon script path
(Sysvol\DomainName\Scripts) - used browse button from within GPO
The logon scripts set under User Configuration\Windows Settings\Scripts (Logon/Logoff),
are not running at all. Have tried several different ones...
even simple .VBS with only msgbox and .BAT file launching only notepad.
Currently only using a "test" GPO and only applied to a "test" OU.
- This is the only GPO assigned to the test OU.
- This is the only GPO with Logon Scripts assigned
I have tried delete/rebuild multiple GPOs w/ Logon Scripts in case of
corruption. Same problem.
The production GPOs, on other OUs, work fine.
Browsing to the Sysvol\DomainName\Scripts dir manually, the user can
navigate there and run them just fine.
Also... using \\<serverDC>\netlogon (assigning via user profile)
works just fine.
I want to run both .VBS (WSH) and .BAT files... have tried many different
simple VBS & BAT files... nothing runs.
It does not seem to be a permissions issue.
The scripts work fine when run manually so they are not the problem.
Can anyone help with this? What am I missing?
