I have created vb script which will be used  for standard Outlook Signature with in organization. I want to add this script in group policy so that it get applicable for all users of active directory. The scenario is :  
 
1. A domain server is there with two domain Controller - Primary & Backup COntroller
2. We use citrix to connect with Domain Controller
3.Outlook is installed on Citrix Server only.
4. Running the Script on Citrix server works fine.

I added the script in Group policy - User configuration - Log On  (On Domain server), but it's not working.

What does the script do?

You are probably better off implementing something on the Exchange server to do it for you. In Exchange 2003, you would use a SMTP event sink and for Exchange 2007 & Exchange 2010 you would use transport rules to add the disclaimer

Script creates signature for user as per account details and restrict the user to change existing / Create New Signature in outlook.

We are using exchange 2003 server.

How to implement SMTP event sink and can we get the same output through  that ?

Here are the instructions for SMTP event sink:

But bare in mind that is for large organisations who have a dedicated bridgehead server (non mailbox smtp sending server) because the disclaimer only gets added as it arrives at the 2nd server before transmission to the Internet.

What is wrong with your current script? Does it not run when you connect via Citrix? Have you tried adding time /t >>%userprofile%\time.log to the top of the script to see if it is running at all?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Thanks for reply , SMTP event sink will not work for me, Script must run during Citrix log in , while connecting to Domain Controller.

You either need to get your script working or have a look at the Exclaimer product
