Which logon script takes priority?

If I have logon scripts set up through AD users/profile tab as well as a different logon script set up in a GP that applies to that user, which takes priority?

Yes, they will both run.

Login scripts process in the following order -> Site, Domain, OU, then User Objects. But they don't run in a series they will run parallel to each other....so depending on how long each script takes to run they can be running at the same time.

Key is to make sure whatever the script is doing does not conflict/overwrite something the other script(s) is doing.

thanks for your reply...the problem is i assigned them logon scripts through the AD users/profile tab first and now i want to do it through GP and i don't want to have to go back in and delete the original setup in everybody's user profile.  

sounds like i might have to though...

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Got just the thing for you. ADModify.net is a program that allows you to make bulk changes in AD: http://www.codeplex.com/admodify/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=6065

It has a relatively easy interface - all you need to do is select everyone's account - ADModify will present you with a property page as if you were looking at one user's account. Switch to the Profile tab and type the word 'null' (without quotes) in the Login Script field and it will clear that attribute for everybody.
