Hi,
I have a logon script that will run when logged in as domain administrator but returns a permissions error when logged in as a user -

\\2003\Server\Netlogon\Logon.bat
Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file, you may not have permission to access the item

I have give permission to administrator, domain admins, everyone, and even a specific user on the security tab of the login script but to no avail.  any suggestions please?

Can the user run the script when logged in, ie from the Run box?  If not, it's probably a Share / NTFS permission problem.

What are the contents of the login script? Is it trying to map a drive/folder that the user does not have permissions to?


Is the login script entered in the Login Script field on the Profile tab in the properties of the user in Active Directory Users & Computers
You only need to enter the file name so in the case you have posted it would be just logon.bat you do not need to enter the path

You need to make sure the BAT file is in \\domainname\\SYSVOL\domainname\scripts folder
