Windows Logon Script Problems

Why would this script take a long time to execute on a Windows 2000 machine?

@echo off

net time \\miller /set /yes




rem *************************************************************
if "%OS%"=="Windows_NT" goto WinNT
IF NOT "%OS%"=="Windows_NT" GOTO Win98

:WinNT
copy \\miller\netlogon\PHL_Wallpaper.bmp c:\winnt
copy \\miller\netlogon\logonwallpaper.bmp c:\winnt
net send PHL-concierge "The above workstation has logged on"
wscript \\miller\netlogon\message-2000.vbs
goto end


:Win98
del c:\windows\guest.pwl
del d:\windows\guest.pwl
copy \\miller\netlogon\guest.pwl c:\windows
copy \\miller\netlogon\guest.pwl d:\windows
copy \\miller\netlogon\PHL_Wallpaper.bmp c:\windows
copy \\miller\netlogon\logonwallpaper.bmp c:\windows
\\miller\downloads$\netsend\netsend PHL-concierge "The above workstation has logged on"
wscript \\miller\netlogon\message-98.vbs
goto end
rem **************************************************************

:end
exit



ONLY on a Windows 2000 is it really SLOWWWWW.....

The script does work, it just take a long time.

It first syncs the time from the server, then copies files from the server (background images) to the destation machine, then it sends a message to the concierge machine letting the desk know that someone has logged on...finally it displays a vbscript that I made displaying all the charges for our service and what you get.....but the problem lies from the begining .....its just really slow at dowing everything....

What I did is remed everything out except for the time sync and still that took a long time....but it didnt even do anything, because a "valid token isnt held by the client" message appears....maybe I'll just give everyone access to change the time...it really isnt a big deal.

Have any other ideas?

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

If you manually run the net time command on one of the workstations, does it take a long time? It may be a name resolution issue. If so, you could try adding  miller and it's associated IP to the workstations host file, and see if that helps.

SlyDog raises a valid point, have you tried REM - ing the lines out one by one to see which is causing the hold up?
