Logon / logoff scripts NOT running

We are running a WIN2Ksp4 server with MetaFrame XP in a NetWare environment.  I have NALWIN32.exe called from a logon script and a batch file being called on a logoff script.  It seems that neither the logon or logoff script will run unless the perrson (me) that configured these scripts has logged in first.  This is the only server in our farm that this is ocurring with.  It is also the only server rinning WIN2K SP4.  Other than backrevving the SP, any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

It is being called from the WIN2K server - M:\WINNT\system32.

Resolved!!!

With SP4, I needed to explicitly assign the "Create global objects" user right to the user accounts - ANY user that will be running NALWIN32 or my .bat files, so I granted this right to the Users group.
