We have a .cmd script which was being used on an NT4 domain using Citrix Terminal Service and this was working fine.
We have now upgarded to 2K and setup a Group Policy for these citrix users but the scripts will not run.
The only way round it we have found is to put the script in the user profile startup, but as some applications are run directly without accessing the desktop the login script has not run when the application is opened directley.

It seems as though it's just not authrnticating to the DC. I have followed technet artilces to check that the printer sharing is enabled on the Citrix network card and that it is at the top of the selection.

Hope this helps.

More infor the problem is with Published Applications login scripts that map drives that run the application.
This will work for NT users but not for 2K?
