I need a way to identify if a travelling user is connected to their local domain before running their login script.  This is to avoid installing software and updates across slow WAN links.

Perhaps identifcation by checking AD OU or subnet?


Cheers

Here's an example of a routine you could use in a .bat to determine the subnet by using the default gateway
 

 

for /f "tokens=2 delims=:" %%a in ('ipconfig ^| find "Gateway"') DO SET GW=%%a

if %GW%== 10.63.106.2 set GW=Location1

if %GW%== 10.63.106.130 set GW=Location2

if %GW%== 10.63.106.162 set GW=Location3

if %GW%== 10.63.106.194 set GW=Location4

I have something running for this at my current job.  It depends on how your network is setup, but here is what I have running in my login scripts before any installs run.

Of course, it would need to be modified to suit your particular situation.
ipconfig /all | findstr /c:"IP Address" | findstr /c:"192.168.x.">nul && (

	goto install

)

ipconfig /all | findstr /c:"IP Address" | findstr /c:"172.16.x.">nul && (

	goto install

)
 

goto end
 

:install

(installs go here)
 
 

:end
