Windows 2008 R2 RDS Logon Scripts will not run at Logon
Posted on 2012-04-10
We are currently testing new terminal servers in our environment using Windows 2008 R2 SP1 and use logon scripts during the logon process for our users. We have Windows 2003 Domain Controllers. All of our scripts run fine when running on our existing 2003 Terminal servers.
None of our logon scripts are running at logon, this does not appear to relate to the content of the scripts. No scripts run when assigned via group policy however they run fine when executed from the desktop. none of the users running the scripts have administrative rights.
I have performed the following: -
1. disabled UAC
2. enabled linked connections
3. configured the sysvol path in ESC domains (to prevent security dialog boxes blocking running the scripts)
4.I have created a vbscript containing a single wscript.echo statement and a batch file containing a single "pause" command, these simple scripts still do not run via GPO but run fine when executed manually.
5. run a RSOP and checked the last run time of the scripts, none of the scripts have a time (suggesting that they have never run).
Any further pointers would be much appreciated.
