User computer policy window dosent popup , when user logs in after Domain controller migration

Hi  

We recently migrated our DC from Windows 2008 to windows 2012 server and also all the netlogon shares to our new server.

Before the migration when students were logging into a computer user policy windows used to appear and the window had options to accept and decline. when the students click the accept the policy the window disappears and the desktop loads.
But if the user declines the PC logs off the user.

Recently I have found, when the student logs I cannot see this window popping up. It straight away loads the desktop.This was set up by my predecessors.

If I go to the properties of a student user properties -Profile- User profile -Logon script

I can see a login.vbs and I have copied the text below. Not sure what it actually means.
Is this calling another script to display the user policy when user logs in ?


Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
If UCase(Left(strComputerName, 3)) = "LAP" Then matchUser = " /matchuser"

When I go to the students OU and there is a GPO applied to this OU. Under the User Configuration - Policies – Windows settings- Scripts

If I see the properties of a logon script- I can see another Student.VBS applied here and the following lines which I have copied from the .


SET DESKTOP WALLPAPER STUDENTS
' ===============================================================================
  WSHShell.Run ("\\domain.local\SYSVOL\domain.local\scripts\bginfo\bginfo.exe \\domain.local\SYSVOL\domain.local\scripts\bginfo\student.bgi /accepteula /timer:0 /silent")
' ===============================================================================
'                              END SET DESKTOP WALLPAPER
' ===============================================================================

I saw the permissions on the bginfo folder and the everyone is set for read and write . Any help to trouble shoot the failing computer policy popup much appreciated.
Or please let me know if there is a better way of implementing this.

Thanks

Hi,

Can you check a setting from this artical? http://technet.microsoft.com/nl-nl/library/cc738773(v=ws.10).aspx

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Scripts\Run shutdown scripts visible

By default script output isn't  visable to users.

This allows the script to use command to interact with the shell:
Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

This compares the first 3 letters of the computername to the string "LAP" and then sets a variable matchUser with the string: "/matchuser"
If UCase(Left(strComputerName, 3)) = "LAP" Then matchUser = " /matchuser"

Hope it helps. Let me know if I was unclear.
