domain controller: not able to map user home folder

I created a bat file and save in netlogon share folder, this is what I have in my batch file:

NET USE Q: /DELETE
NET USE Q: \\ppiser01\users\%username% /y

Before I put the batch in each user's profile "logon script", I tested within the domain admin account. I double clicked the batch, the cmd screen popped up and disappear but no user folder and Q drive created.

But when I put \\ppiser01\users\%username% in user's profile, under "Home folder" -> connect, it will create the folder and map the drive... so what is wrong with the first method?
