Usrlogon.cmd does not run at login on 2003 server

I just added a new 2003 server to our terminal server farm. As I understand it, usrlogon.cmd is supposed to automatically run when users connect via RPC. It does run for all users on our other servers, but doesn't seem to be running for the new one. How can I force it to run as the others do?

If usrlogon.cmd is configured as logon script through GPO, you should check if the GPO has any security settings, preventing it to be applied on your new server. If the script is locally executed it should be configured to run from the same place as on the old servers (All users Startup, registry HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Run)
Hope it helps!

The script was actually running, but erring out. The reg file was there by default, so I did not need to make changes there. The fix was to copy the cmd file and common application script folder to the new server, overwriting what was there. This answer was correct, according to the question
