Hi,
we have a windows 2000 domain controller and I have setup a logon script (.vbs) under profile on my account in AD. The path I used is \\machinename\netlogn\login.vbs.
I tried running the scrip by itself and the script is working fine. Not sure why its not working when I login to my computer using the network credentails..Here is the script I am using.

Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001

strComputer = "."
Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
 
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main"
ValueName = "Start Page"
strValue = "http://testhomepage.com"
objReg.SetStringValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER, strKeyPath, ValueName, strValue

That could be the problem, how are you implementing the login script?

Can the user access the path where the login script is stored?

The setting you are trying to change can be controlled from Group Policy.  This would be a much better solution.  You can also run logon scripts using group policy - but there is no point if a policy already exists to do what the script would do.

Group Policy allows you to control many aspects of Internet Explorer, including the home page (which your script sets).

Details for group policy are here, it would be worth a look: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/grouppolicy/default.aspx
