I have a machine that is connected to the network but I have a basic .bat file running as a login script and it is not working.  How can I troubleshoot this?  Any idea what the problem could be?

manually run the script on the machine, see if it works then.

check to see if its the whole script or just part of it.

I will be heading over there in 6 hours to test it.  I just wanted a few ideas just in case.   I was thinking it could be folder permissions or corrupt computer account on the domain.

As LHT_ST suggested, try running on the machine, but also try adding 'Pause' at the end of the script and turning echoing on before running, so you should see where it fails (if it runs at all).

So what if it runs fine if I manually run the script?  What could be a cause of it not starting in the first place?

What tells the batch file to run? Is it the logon script defined through Active Directory?

If so, I'd again agree that it could be a permission issue. If that's the case, then this should be apparent by reviewing Event Viewer on either the PC, or the server where the logon script is stored. Let us know how it goes when you're on the PC in question.

The computer had an AVG Firewall configured.  I modified the configuration and the scripts were able to run.

I determined the firewall was configured to block certain ip addresses on the internal network.
