Using group policy to copy files
Posted on 2005-03-04
I need to copy some files to C:\ on every PC in my company.
We have a Windows 2000 domain and the clients are all XP. I've tried to do this already by creating an xcopy script and putting it in the computer start up scripts at the top level group policy on the domain. It worked, but it took about 20 minutes per client PC to do and the files are only about 1mb in total size.
The script I used was:
xcopy "\\dc3\sysvol\lan.ikano.uk\scripts\desktop" "C:\" /s /y
Any reasons why this would take so long?
Does anyone have a better method to simply copy a folder with about 30 files in it to a hard disk via an automated process?
