Logon Question

I have a vbs script set up in a group policy to run at logon depending on site location.  It's just a basic script that maps drives to certain shares.  This has been working pretty good since we implemented the new servers back in August.  However, in the last week I have noticed some problems with the script not running.  The first time I log in, I get no drive mappings what so ever.  But if I log back off and right back on the second time it works fine.  Also, in my script I have it set to delete drives in case they were still mapped from before.  There are times when this doesn't work either.  Any ideas as to why either or these would be happening?  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Have you changed something on your switches ?
if you have the options, try to deactivate the FastLink option on the port used by the clients.
This option can also be named FastPort or PortFast, and is to be setted / unsetted on each port.

It enables the port to transmit infos on the network before the switch identified the device, or before the spanning tree protocol integrated these infos.

If that isn't are you sure nothing else has changed recently ?

Nope, haven't changed anything with the switches.  Really can't think of anything that has changed on the servers either.  It's really weird that the scripts don't work though.  They are set at the Site level.  If I run the set l command from a command prompt it shows the correct logon server and I get the correct IP address associated with the site, just no script.

im sure it's that way you have to look. Look in the switches in order to be clear

Below is a copy of the script.  Had the exact same problem this morning when I logged in.  No drive mappings the first time, log off and right back on and everything worked fine.
