Problem with logon scripts connecting to 2003 servers from XP machines...

Some of our users have reported that the logon scripts don't run first time when they log on  - they have to log off and on again....

And some times the scripts will not run at all...

Dear ise438,
Can you check the time on those systems and you may also sync the time with your DC. You may run force the Grouppolicy update by using gpupdate /force and check once

Cheers!

This can be down to the group policy setting "wait for network" I believe - set it in group policy here:

Computer Configuration-->Administrative Templates-->System-->Logon, change "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon"

There is also User Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Logon/Logoff > Run logon scripts synchronously which wait for the script to run before bringing up the desktop.

It could also be if you are running the script without any settings for persistent drive mappings the drives are re-mapping and causing problems and theyn can't be rempapped by the login script:

Try

net use * /delete
net use /persistent:no

at the top of your existing login script to remove all mappings and make future mappings disappear at logoff automatically

The comments won't go, but if you are still there I imagine it will get left for a while again.  Do you know when you may return to this?
