can you post your logon script, to see if there is issues with this.
also is your network slow at all when copying files or anything? is the network at capacity? this can slowdown loging into pc and stop scripts from running.
my script works 100% looks like attached.
also could be corrupted profile on specific computers.
try recreating users profile if changing script doesnt work.
net use g: "\\server\shared data"
net use j: "\\server\finadmin"
net use k: "\\server\finance"

maybe your problem is not a script problem, but a network problem.
Can't you see an error message that the computer is not able to set his network drive ?

Why don't you make your network drives persistant ? so you don't have to recreate the drive when users log on.?

Hi fais79,

Do you have multiple domain controllers? It's possible you have a replication or permissions issue between them and the script is not available on one or more of them - this would explain the intermittent results.  

Check the File Replication Service logs on the DCs for a start!

Cheers,
Simeon

If these scripts run through GPO  Group Policy Objects then it is possible that either the workstations or user are not in the OU they are applied to.

Other than that i would think maybe it has to do with network issues.

No they do not run via GPO.  Scripts are contained in the Netlogon

NET USE h: \\tgp12\graphics
