Login scripts through Active Directory

I have a login script that I would like every workstation to run whenever a user logs on.  I go into Active Directory and assign the login script to my Workstations OU, yet the login script never seems to run.

I've done GPUPDATE on my computer to be sure I was using the most recent user policy on the computer.  I've even tried putting the script in the startup section of the machine policy.  No luck.  I know the script works because when I double click the BAT file on my computer, it runs just fine.

Maybe I'm leaving something out.  The program I am trying to run does not require admin rights or anything.

Here's a copy of the script. (It's just one line)

\\brannmedia\aida32$\AIDA32.exe /R \\brannmedia\aida32$\reports\audit\$HOSTNAME.csv /csv /AUDIT /custom \\brannmedia\$aida32\aida32.rpf /SAFE /SILENT

Also, my AD runs on Windows 2000
and my workstations are windows XP.

Oh yeah.  I also made a simple login script just to see if my workstation was even pulling the script.  No luck.  It didn't do anything.

echo test
pause

It looks like a login script that can run only on user, not on machine account. Have you tried to assign the login script to users ou?

I just applied it to an OU that contains user accounts and it still didn't work.

Hi

Have you checked security permissions on the group policy attached to the ou that authenticated users are checked to apply group policy?

That's not good. I suppose all computers are joined to the domain. Let's debug. Add a pause line on the script after your lines and enable in GPO to run logon script visible and synchronous. Enable Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon
