Windows Script Help - 2k3 Login.bat

My company has several different offices with applications that run from the local DCs and file servers.  I wrote a script to determine which branch a workstation was at and would process a login script accordingly.  The script seems to run most of the time, but there are a few sporatic workstations that either don’t run the script at all or run the wrong script.  Any and all improvements or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Below are examples of the scripts I am using:

================================================
MAIN SCRIPT:

@ECHO OFF
CLS

if exist c:\site1.txt CALL //site1/SYSVOL/COMPANY.NET/SCRIPTS/site1.BAT GOTO EOF

if exist c:\site2.txt CALL //site2/SYSVOL/COMPANY.NET/SCRIPTS/site2.BAT GOTO EOF

if exist c:\site3.txt CALL //site3/SYSVOL/COMPANY.NET/SCRIPTS/site3.BAT GOTO EOF

if exist c:\site4.txt CALL //site4/SYSVOL/COMPANY.NET/SCRIPTS/site4.BAT  GOTO EOF

:EOF
EXIT

===================================================
SITE1 SCRIPT

@ECHO OFF
CLS

Net Time \\site1 /set /yes

rem *** Remove any existing mapped drives used in the logon script:
for %%a in (g n o p r s t u x) do net use %%a: /delete >nul 2>nul
rem *** Make drive mappings non-persistent:
net use /persistent:no

Net Use o: \\site1\documents\
Net Use u: \\site1\apps$\application
Net Use N: \\site1\apps$\

ipconfig >c:\site1.txt
echo ************************************** >>c:\site1.txt
echo ***%date%***%time%***%computername%***%username%*** >>c:\site1.txt
echo ************************************** >>c:\site1.txt

call \\site1\sysvol\company.net\scripts\site1Printer.vb

Perhaps it's permissions in that the user can't set the time on their system?

Domain users are part of the local admin group on every workstation.

What about the policy though to prevent changing system time - is that somehow disabled for local users?
Start->Run->secpol.msc - under User Rights Assignment - who has access to change system time?

For testing also - I would try just the net time command on one of those workstations - note the results when run manually using that account.

You might also adjust your logon script temporarily - remove the @echo off (so you can see the processing) and place a pause after the net time /set - so that you can determine any errors...
