Windows Domains - Startup/Shutdown Scripts
Posted on 2011-02-24
At my last two companies, the general approach to providing end users with startup scripts was to go into a users' AD profile, go to their Profile tab, and specify a logon script (vbs or bat file) which would physically exist in a directory somewhere.
As I have started to expand my knowledge on Windows Server I have noticed that I can assign startup/shutdown scripts through group policy. Therefore, my question is - what is the difference between these two approaches?
