The logon scripts dont work on slow link when "allow local user profiles only" setting is enabled
SO when users login for the first time the scripts dont get executed.
When they login for the second time it works.
If we disable or even leave the "allow local user profiles" setting as not configured it works in the first go without having to log off.
It is a slow link and slow link detection and fast logon optimization have been disabled.
please advice

i think this is normal behaviour
when you create a local profile, it is meant to be used on that pc alone (origonally) and is also empty, so no login scripts...
you could try to paste the script in the startup folder, it should be executed (again or not again) after login has happened.

I agree that is supposed to be by design.
The problem is that if this perticular setting "allow local user profiles only" is enabled teh scripts do not function
If we dont configure it the scripts process in the first go.

I dont think we are talking about locla profiles, but Locally cached copies of the Roaming Profiles. If this is the case, putting login scripts in the startup folder will become a nightmare eventually......
The results of what you are seeing, are very similar to the Fast Logon Optimization, where a second login is required for certain types of policies to be applied.

Hi, I had a word with Microsoft , they are saying it's by design, so we don't have any other option. We have to accept that. So, I would like to close this as self answered. Could you please do that??

Thanks...
