Logon Scripts don't run

I have a logon.bat file containing the following:

REM NETWORK SCRIPT
net time \\<dc ip address> /set /y
net use U: \\<server>\u$

The file is saved in the NETLOGON folder of my DC.  Under my user profile in AD for Logon Script: logon.bat

I had this working but now it's stopped for some reason any idea?

If I browse to the NETLOGON folder and execute the batch file it runs and maps the drive.  I've tried this with 2 different user accounts and 2 different machines.

If you log out immediately and then log in straight away, does the script run the second time?

No it didn't, but I got it fixed already here's what happened:

I was setting up a 2nd script called logon_sales.bat, I was also having issues with this one.  On MY user account I wanted logon.bat to run and it would only run on logon if in AD I called it just plain logon (no .bat), the 2nd script called logon_sales.bat would only run if in AD I called it logon_sales.bat, but in NETLOGON both scripts are shown as just logon and logon_sales, but are recognized as batch files anyways.  IF you add the .bat to them in NETLOGON so they appear as logon.bat and logon_sales.bat then you go to Start -> Run and type \\server\NETLOGON\ they show up as logon.bat.bat and long_sales.bat.bat  I'm guessing NETLOGON assumes what you put in the is going to a Batch file?

yes, I set my machines to have system and hidden files shown, as well as displaying system files and dont hide extensions.

Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> View tab.

P.S. I use .cmd for scripts also.

Thanks, I usually set my machines to not hide extensions, just inherited this machine and it wasn't setup that way and haven't done it yet.  Thanks for the reminder!
