I moved my Windows 2000 teminal server from a remote site to the main site, now it maps drives and runs the login script from the remote nt4 BDC.  How do i get it to run the login script from the PDC sitting 1 foot away?
Thanks
John

You need to use Kixstart, on the installation CD.  You'll be able to find out which domain controller you are on...

Kixtart is a scripting language you can use for logon scripts with much more functionality than basic batch files.  To use kixtart scripts you the Kixtart executables and dlls into your netlogon share on your DC. Then you write your Kixtart commands into a script file with a .kix extension and then call the .kix file from a batch file. You specifiy the batch file as the logon script for users.

It may sound complex but it isn't... what is your level of expertise?  

Ask more questions if you need to

Cheers,

Each Domain controller, backup or primary has it's own login script for that network segment.  This Server was brought from one site to another, but it continues to try to login to the bdc on the other segment. I am under the impression that a client computer finds the domain controller on the local segment then runs it's login script. Do i have to change anything when i move a server from one segment to another.
My level of expertise is low to mid. i'm more of a netware guy.
Thanks

just a thought!!, why dont you unjoin and rejoin the domain on the Win2K TS Server and see if it makes the difference.

Will that kill all my profiles?  I think you might have the right answer,  do you know anything about policy management in terminal server 2K?

That should not kill any of the profiles, but if that is your concern you can always backup the Document and settings folder and restore it if that happens, but to me that should not happen at all,

I am not clear as to what do u mean by policy management in terminal server:
if you are looking for a different script for TS, here is a link:

here is another link which gives more info about the TS:

Hope this helps
