I need to make a change to a login Script I didn't setup. So I checked a users AD profile got the name of the script login.bat. Went to where I thought it would be and I do see a login.bat file there but when I go to edit it it is blank. There is a login script somewhere because its working but its n ot this file I'm looking at under C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL\DOMAIN\SCRIPTS on the server. Can that path be adjusted somewhere and the active login.bat file be stores somewhere else on the server?

from a computer in the domain open the run window and type %logonserver%\netlogon that should bring you to the directory.

By default they are usually in \\domaincontrollername\netlogon

If you want to find this location you can use the shared folders mmc. Point the mmc at your domain controller and then select shares. Under that window it should show you the path.
