I have created a login.bat file and placed it in the sysvol folder on my windows 2003 server.
the script reads       net use h: \\testserver\users\%username%
I went to AD users / computers and selected the user account that I wanted to use this script and input the directory to the location of this script.

When I login at the client PC it doesn;t run the script yet I can browse to it and manually run it. What have I missed? Do I have to setup a Group Policy for this to work?

under profile you just need to put the name of the login script .bat. As far as the home directory that is just what it is.

If you put it in the SYSVOL Folder you did not go deep enough:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL\sysvol\<domain name>\scripts <--> NETLOGON Folder

If above is confusing, the scripts folder is shared as the NETLOGON Folder.
