workstation not running login script

I have been looking at the running of the login scripts and can not see why they are not running when I log in through my normal desktop.  It is as if there is no logon server available, but if you do a SET, you see the logon server.  I thought that the problem could be this server and did an nltest reset so that the logon server is a different domain controller, but still the same problem.

It is not as if there is an error with the script and I get an error message appearing.  I even used a different login script to see if it is a problem with the original script.

I can log into citrix and it runs the login script without a problem

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Didy

IS there more than one domain controller? If so try putting the script on the other one(s).

Also if your mapping drives, you can check to see if the letter being mapped is already mapped to something else on a workstation. In NT 4 it would generate an error (it just wouldnt run the script). Not sure about 2000 (never seen it but worth a shot)

Service Pack 4 implements new policies, Windows 2000 Systems with SP4 applied that are located in resource domains will have problems running logon scripts in the Account Domains. Systems located in the same domain as the logon script will not have this problem. Follow these steps to modify the policy causing the problem:

 

Run gpedit.msc

Click - Local Computer Policy in left pane

Click - Computer Configuration in left pane

Click - Administrative Templates in left pane

Click - System in left pane

Click - Group Policy

Click 'Allow Cross-Forest User Policy and Roaming User Profile in right pane

Click - Enable

Reboot the machine

Log back into Account Domain
