What does the Small Business Server 2003 default login script do.

The SBS 2003 default logon script "SBS_LOGIN_SCRIPT.bat" runs the following:

\\SBSServer\Clients\Setup\setup.exe /s SBSServer

What does the setup.exe do?
Does it need to run every time a user logs on?
What happens if I remove the script from the user's logon?

Just to confirm:  the setup.exe in the batch file only needs to run when the computer is setup to install apps.  After the computer is setup & the needed apps are installed, I can rem out the entry.

yes, correct. doesn't sound like you're worried about mapped drives or have any configured using the logon script to worry about.

Been some time since I had this issue, so I don't remember exactly, but you might rem it out and verify if the logon takes any less time.  Setup.exe checks the target and does nothing if the target is already setup.
