Windows 2003 AD login script asks for credentials on Windows 7 Pro PCs

Hello,

We have both Windows XP and Windows 7 PCs on a Windows Server 2003 domain.  The login script runs fine on Windows XP machines, but on Windows 7 machines, the login script asks for a username and password.  If we put in the username and password, the drives still don't map anyways.  We will post more details as they become available as we are just getting started with troubleshooting this issue.

Thanks,
Mike

A couple questions.

Are the Win 7 PCs getting any kind of GPO settings to prevent the Run dialog on the Start menu? may want to double check. That would prevent browsing to a share and give you the "disallowed" message.

User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Task Bar > Remove Run menu from Start Menu

Also.. login scripts run differently on Win 7 when UAC is on. You need a wrapper script to create a task which will then run the real login script.

If we browse to the Netlogon share or the Group Policy object manually, and run it from there, it works fine.

In Windows 7, if we try to browse to a Windows 2003 Server (i.e. \\server01), it says "Accessing the resource \\server01 has been disallowed."  We are wondering if this is causing the login script issue.

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

When attempting to map a drive to a share on a Windows 2003 server from a Windows 7 PC with the CMD window, it asks for credentials as well.

After doing some more searching while waiting here, we found Run disabled, so we put it back to Not configured.

We also turned Traverse Folder/Execute File on for a single shared folder in the security settings which stopped the login script from asking for a userID and password.
