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?

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.
