group policy logoff script not working

i have the current logoff script in group policy and its not executing. I am not sure why. i am running windows server 2008 r2. the script id located in the file path

c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\user\scripts\logoff

the script is


echo off
Echo %DATE% - %TIME% %USERNAME% logged out %COMPUTERNAME% >>\\kami-server\userlog\%username%.txt


the users have the permission to write in the folder it is designated to. I'm a little lost can someone help?

Is there a reason why your script is not on your domain controller? You should be saving the script in a location accessible to all users/workstations (not C drive), usually the default location it provides when you're linking the script to the GPO.

e.g.
\\mydomain.com\SYSVOL\mydomain.com\Policies\{99320-3543-4354GroupPolicy GUID}\Users\Scripts\Logon\

Try this

@ECHO OFF
IF EXIST %systemdrive%\progra~1\VAIID-~1\LogonP~1\logonp.exe goto LP
EXIT
:LP
IF EXIST %systemdrive%\progra~1\VAIID-~1\LogonP~1\7.1.0.1029 goto LPMain
%logonserver%\sysvol\wurnet.nl\scripts\DE\Tools\vailogon.exe %logonserver%\sysvol\wurnet.nl\scripts\Infra\DE\OT\lpupd.dat

Oh is the logoff script pointed to c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\user\scripts\logoff in Group Policy??  If it is then it will point to the users computer's c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\user\scripts\logoff...  Which probably doesnt exist.

(oops in your case Logoff folder not Logon)

If it still does not work, check the event log on the workstation.

You can also create another "test" logon script and assign it to yourself and see if you get a pop up when you log on the system:

Wscript.Echo "HELLO WORLD!"

@zgiuffria yes, when i go to edit group policy and click on show files, it takes me to the path C:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\user\scripts\logoff

@thinkpaper i have placed the logoff.bat file in

\\kami-server\SYSVOL\kamisama.com\scripts\logoff.bat

i did not see a folder called \{99320-3543-4354GroupPolicy GUID}\Users\Scripts\Logon\ under the policies folder. also under users, there is no script folder. Am i suppose to create them?

what i see under the polices folder is

\\kamisama.com\SYSVOL\mydomain.com\Policies\{6AC1786C-016F-11D2-945F-00C04fB984F9}\Users\
                                                                            \{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\Users\

Ok so the organizational unit that the user is under.  (under active directory)  Has that policy applied to it right?  Or is the policy applied to the entire domain?
