One Time Login Script for a Global Security Group
Posted on 2011-09-14
Running ActiveDirectory 5.2 on a Windows 2003 SP2 Machine
We are running a major update on a server based database. After the installation, there is an ActiveX exe file that is on the server that has to be run on all of the database users computers (about 30-40 people - only about 20% of our full staff). They are all in a global security group on our active directory (although it's not their main group). They also each have a batch file that runs on login to map the correct network drives (although there are a few different .bat files that's dependent on their department - all of these users don't all run the same .bat file).
This is what tech support at the software company said:
"Once the installation is complete on the database server, a file called “xxxxxxxx.exe” will be added to the xx\common directory on your application server. If you place this file in your users’ Login script, then it will run when logging into the domain."
Is it possible to run a batch file on a security group only once (the next time they login) and still run their primary batch file?
