Hi everyone,

I'm wanting to use logon scripts by adding the logon script name (test1.bat) into the profile tab under each users properties on my Server (server 2008 r2).  This is a workgroup server.

Where do I put test1.bat in the server for windows to pick up?

I know in my domain controlled environments this is in the sysvol folder, but as you know workgroup servers do not have the sysvol folder.

I know of workarounds to this issue but I want it to work this way because of what I am planning to do this is the tidiest way to do it.

Thanks.

You can put it anywhere you want on the local drives. I recommend the Windows directory so regular users can't edit the script files.

Really?  Sorry for my incompetence but how does windows know where the file resides?  It searches everytime upon load for my bat file?

Sorry i had a blonde moment.  Of course I put the full file path in.

I'm just so used to domain environments where I don't have to for logon scripts.

Its all becoming clearer now haha.  Thanks!

It would search the Windows directory anyway because it's in the path.
