Windows RDS Server - clients unable to run local VBS logon script

Greetings all,

I have an RDS Server (2008 R2 Enterprise) that I've taken over.  When clients log in to the RDS server, a batch file located in C:\Script is run that copies some files to their desktop.  I have been unable to find where the setting is that is causing the batch file to run when clients log in to the Terminal Server.

I needed to do more at logon so I created a VBScript that does everything I want.  I placed it in the C:\Script folder to see what would happen and of course, it does not run.

I can find another way to run my vbscript but I really would like to know how this batch file is being kicked off?  How does the client/server know to run that batch file in that folder at logon.

I have checked the GPOs and did not find anything in the Computer or User sections for logon scripts, they are empty.  Anyone know of another location in a GPO that one might tell RDS clients to run a script?  Anywhere in the RDS tools like (Session Manager etc) a setting might live that runs batch files in this C:\Scripts folder?

Thanks!

Oops - forgot to mention this.  When I place the batch file in the C:\Script folder it runs.  When I place the VB script it does not run.  Something somewhere telling clients to run scripts from that folder and I'm just not locating it.

Have you looked in the user properties in Active Directory Computers and Users? See picture--there is place to place a logon script location--see picture

Thank you Lionelmm! I had checked AD Group Policy under Logon/Logoff scripts and found nothing but I had not checked this section of the user account properties.

Have a great week!
