Hi All,

I have a new windows sbs 2008 server. I am trying to push down a login script via GPO but for some reason it is not working. The GPO is linked and enforced. I have also un-forced and unlinked all the default GPO's that come with sbs2008. The login script is pushing down to all brand new Windows 7 machines. Here is what I have:

The GPO I have in place:
User -> Policies -> Windows -> Settings -> Login -> login.bat

The login.bat file which is saved in the \\server\NETLOGON folder:

@ECHO OFF
LOGIN SCRIPT
ECHO. ADDING PRINTER
Cscript \\server\\sysvol\domain.local\scripts\AddPrinter.vbs
ECHO. ADDING MAPPED DRIVE
Cscript \\server\\sysvol\domain.local\scripts\MapDrive.vbs

The AddPrinter.vbs which is saved in \\server\NETLOGON folder:

Set WSHNetwork = CreateObject(“WScript.Network”)
WSHNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection “\\server\TOSHIBA"
WSHNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter “\\server\TOSHIBA"

The MapDrive.vbs which is saved in \\server\NETLOGON folder:

net use S: \\server\share1

Any ideas what is going on?

Thanks,

Now when I login with a user account its saying it can't find the location of the script.
Users have read access to the NETLOGON folder

put the files inside the scripts folder inside c:windows\sysvol\domail\localdomain\scripts .  in your domain controller .

thanks adiloadilo. In addition to moving the scripts to that location, we drop the WSHNetwork and used con2prt.exe file we had and it worked.
