Login script not working

We have a logon script setup to map users to network drives etc. Recently I added another server and moved one of the shared folders to the new server. I had thought going into the login script and changine the net use command to the new server for that folder would just work but of course it does not. Whats even stranger I created 2 new user accounts for new suers and when I login as them I get the old unedited version to run mapping the drive to the old server. What am I doing wrong  from the PC's if I go %logonserver%\netlogon and manually run the login script it runs to the correct folders but its not applying when enyone logs in.

Assuming that there is no permission issue on the folder share for user try applying below policy and check how does it work.From the client computer also try to access the user share(UNC path) to ensure that there is no permission issue

Try to enable the policy setting "Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" to disable the Fast Logon Optimization feature then check whether it will happen again.

Alternately you can apply map drive with group policy preference.

No one site in one building.

If I run it manually it does seem to work
