Win2k PDC - Logon script to identify Win2k Server, Win2k Pro and WinXP machines

Hi, I need to write a short logon script for a Win2k Domain to allow the following:

If OS = Win2k Server then
execute action 1
if OS = Win2k Pro then
execute action 2
if OS = WinXP then
execute action 3

How do I identify W2k SERVER, PRO and XP using a logon script ? %OS% does not seem to identy flavours of OS...

Many thanks,

Hi, this works well for win2k PCs but not for XP. Whist I can use "errorlevel 9" for XP, it does not give a definitive answer for XP PCs. Could you help me understand how I can use VER in a batch file to reliably identify XP PC's with this script ?

I use the VER script similar to above, and to detect a server,

IF exist  %windir%\system32\dsa.msc SET ISSERVER=TRUE

then branching your 2000 script with

IF "%ISSERVER%"=="TRUE" ( do server thing ) ELSE (do non server thing)

dsa.msc is a server only file - you can choose from many, but some are only installed with specific options - dsa is one that is always (AFAIK) installed

Hi. Thank you both very much. I've ended up using a hybrid of both. The absolute detection of XP is not 100% certain, unless I use both methods. There are no Win95/98/ME PCs on the network, so a failure of gettype to detect XP is OK, and I use the %ISSERVER% test to make sure that all machines that end up in the gettype errorleve 9 are not servers.

Hope you are happy with a point spilt.

Best regards,

James
