Login script

One of our terminal servers started having a weird issue. The login script that is applied by gpo does not run. it is fine when users log into the other terminal servers. If I make the user a local admin on the terminal server and they log in the script runs fine. When I take them out of the admin group it does not run. I am thinking it is a local permissions issue but what could have changed? What does the kix login script need access to locally?

Is the GPO applying when a regular (non-admin) user logs in?

I actually figured it out. Somehow the permissions on cmd.exe were modified. Only Administrators had access to the executable. I copied the permissions from a working server and now it is working.

Good deal.  Might have taken me a while to figure that one out.
