I'm assuming that you want to use a logon script to test and create a directory on a remote machine running that logon script. The following batch file will do that.  You can either call it from your logon batch file or include it right in the batch file.


@echo off
if exist c:\testdir\nul md c:\testdir\test2
if not exist c:\testdir\nul md c:\testdir md c:\testdir\test2


The 'nul' isn't a file or folder or anything, it's just used to see if the directory actually exists

Remember, only one L in nul !

if exist c:\testdir\nul md c:\testdir\test2
This says that if the directory testdir exists on the C:\ drive, make the directory test2 in the directory testdir

if not exist c:\testdir\nul md c:\testdir md c:\testdir\test2
This says that if the directory testdir doesn't exist on the C:\ drive, then make the directory testdir in C:, then make the directory test2 in testdir

d:, c: are interchangeable of course.
