We have a Windows Server 2003 DC on a small network. We are in the process of replacing a number of NT workstations w/ XP Pro workstations.

I found that the default Fast Logon feature was causing logon scripts to not run on the first new workstation I am installing, so I used GPEdit to disable it.

My question: Is it necessary to carry out the steps of disabling this feature on every single workstation, or is there a way using the server that we can force the logon scripts to run?

Alternatively, I have created a set of registry entries that I import into the registry of each workstation to help in setting it up. Can the Fast Logon feature be manipulated through the registry?

You can use a GPO in group policy to disable the fast logon feature by ENABLING this feature:

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\ Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon

That will make srue the login scripts run correctly.
