If i run ifmember /list it displays the correct groups

But it seems to map the first group in the script which looks like the following..


:52Commerce
%logonserver%\ifmember Domain\52Commerce
if not errorlevel 1 goto 53Fresno
net use j: \\server\Commerce

I guess ifmember.exe is running just fine ...
It's just the line
%logonserver%\ifmember Domain\52Commerce
that is not correct.
You'll (probably) want
%logonserver%\netlogon\ifmember.exe Domain\52Commerce
(or just leave the path out completely if this is running in a logon script and ifmember is in the netlogon share).

That did it! not sure wether it was the .exe extension added and/or the netlogon, but it works.
By the way, if I leave the %logonserver% parameter out, it says ifmember is an unrecognized command.

Anyways your solution worked, thanks a bunch.

It wasn't the .exe extension; there's just no share "ifmember" on your server ;)
I just like to add the .exe extension for external programs in my scripts because it makes them easier to read (at least for me); you can see easier which is an external command, and it makes it easier to identify which external tools are used in a script in case you forgot to document it ...
