Using Script in GPO
Posted on 2005-03-27
I have the following script that is supposed to install Track-it Workstation Manager in the client machines(WXP)
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
when I run the script ,by itself, it installs the workstation manager on the local machine and puts the icon on the tray. But when I try to run it through gpo it doesn't install it.
here is what I did :
I created a gpo at domain level,then edited it, then went to User Configuration/windows settings/Scripts(logon/logoff) double clicked logon then add then Browse to C:\Winnt\Sysvol\sysvol\domainname\Scripts then select the script file(trackit.vbs) then clicked open it copied the path to the script name field, I changed that to %logonserver%\netlogon\trackit.vbs then clicked OK then clicked apply/ok.
When I logon from WXP machine the scripts run, but it only shows the message "Hello" , I searched for the tiwsmgr file, I found only the text file.
PS : If you are using Track-it help desk software and you know how audit all the machines in the network and populate the inventory, please help
