Terminal Services 2000, prevent logon scripts from running

I have a windows 2000 terminal server, when my users connect they run their default login script which in some cases maps drives across the WAN.  The users do not need any information from the logon script when connected to the terminal server so I would like to prevent the logon script from running when connect to the terminal server. Any suggestions?

What do you use as a logon script? Batch, Kix etc.

If you run a batch file you can add this line at the top
IF %computername% == YOURTERMINALSERVERNAME Exit

What this will do is check the local machine name where the user logon and if it's the same as the server name it will exit the script therefore not running anymore commands.

Let me know if you use something other than Batch and I will see if I can help.

We use both Batch and VBS.  I have added this to the batch file and it seems to work.  I would like something for the VBS or a way to stop login script from processing at all, maybe group policy setting or such.

Hi,
Here is how to stop VBS login script.

Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
IF WshNetwork.ComputerName = "YOURTERMINALSERVERNAME" Then
WScript.Quit
Else
The Rest of your login script Here.
End If

Remember to test it before you make the change on the live network.
