I have set up the GPO to control the windows firewall on and off the domain. I am finding that because of policies that were assigned before SP2 was installed that on some machines in the domain are not starting their windows firewall(KB892199).
what i am looking to do is to add to the bottom of my logon . bat script to check that the windows firewall is started and if it is not to log it to a log.txt file on a shared folder on a server.
the current logon bat is as follows
net use /y x: \\mydomain\shared
if this can be easily done by adding VB code into the logon bat, exactly what code would need to be added( i have no VBscript knowledge at all)
