Startup Script Accessing A Shared Drive? (Active Directory)

We have an application that requires updates every so often. The application installed a version controll application on each client machine.

To execute the version control we just do C:\vcp.exe /r

This connects to a shared drive, in this case \\DC6\app_root\ and pulls down all the new needed files and registers them.

You need administrator rights on each machine to do this, i tried creating a startup script and sticking it under the machine startup in group policy, however i get an error "You are not properly logged on or have no access to \\DC6\

Anyone have any thoughts? Will it work if i stick it under the user level? Its a pain to manually update each machine...

A startup script can/will connect to network resources with the credentials of the *computer* object in AD.
In other words: the share "\\dc6\app_root" needs to be accessible by share and NTFS permissions for each computer object on which you want to run this script. You can either use the global default group "Domain Computers", or you can add the required computer objects into a dedicated group and give this group permissions (requires a restart of the machines in order to recognize the changed group membership).
