Hello,
Am using a VBS script at logon to add computers to a security group in AD.  I have one group, teachers, which are local admins on the workstations and the scripts are workign correctly.  I have another group, students, whose accounts are locked down pretty tightly by GPO that is receiving a VBS script error permission denie when they login.  I have tried moving the script to a machine start up script and received reports that everyone was now receiving the error.  Can anyone tell me where to look to allow the script to run for students?  Runnign Windows Server 2008 R2.  Thanks.

Hi astring. If I understand correctly you are trying to execute commands that require elevated privileges not permitted to the logon script.  Perhaps you can use one of these tools to execute these types of tasks:
    * SU.EXE in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit
    * PsExec (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553)
    * TqcRunas (http://www.quimeras.com/default.asp?control=1)
    * CPAU (http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/cpau/index.htm)
    * RUNASSPC (http://robotronic.de/runasspcEn.html)

Hello Thomas,
What I was trying to do was to run a VBS logon script that would add computers to a security group.  I have found the answer...the user needs the "write" permission to the group to which the coputer will be added.   Once I did this, the error went away and the m achines are showing up in the correct group.  Thanks for the response though.
