Locate a logon script.

When I logon to workstation I get network drives mapped.
I am looking in the domain controller to find where the script is located but no luck.
I checked GPOs and run Gpresult in my computer, I also checked Netlogon share in DC and could not see it.

Is there any other place to look to find this logon script?

Thanks

Are you trying to find the group policy that is causing the script to run, or locate the actual script file that is running?

Typical locations for logon scripts:
Domain: \\fullyqualifieddomainname\SYSVOL\fullyqualifieddomainname\scripts

Are you sure it's not a local logon script running?

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?

If I logon to the DC, which path should I go through to get to the script?

C:\windows\sysvol\domain\scripts
Of course this is the same path you did at first with the netlogon share. The netlogon share is basically a shortcut to the domain folder. If you right-click my computer, then manage, then shared folders then shared. You can see they are (or should be) the same.

Actually I pingged the fulldomainname and it returned the IP address of DC that physicall has the scripts. I logged on to the DC and browsed to C:\windows\sysvol\domain\scripts and found the script there.
