SBS 2011 Logon scripts for mapped drives

Hi All

we have just migrated a server from sbs2008 to sbs2011 and now the usually login scripts for mapped drives are not being picked up.

We have tested manually and yep the scripts are good, access to folders are good, access to the "NETLOGON" folder is good. However the scripts are not working.

The scripts have been edit to point to the new server (yep, working when run manually)

we do want to get away from scripts and use GPO for mapped drives, but in the meantime still need to use Login scripts.

any ideas?

Ok..  It is not an Easter egg hunt here!!

What are you using?
KiXtart
Batch
VBscript
PowerShell
GPO/LGO

I would suspect with the uset of NETLOGON, you are using BAT with KiXtart..  What is wrong with a bat file that does a drive mapping?  A better way would be to use a GPO or similar medthod.

Hi

we are using  bat file with the standard net use cmd.

the batch files are fine, the issue is with the accounts when they log in they are not picking up the batch files, that are stored in the \\sbs2011\NETLOGON share.

the accounts in AD have the login script set to pick up the scripts from the new server just as they had before on the old sbs2008  (yes the path has been changed to point to the new sbs2011)

cheers

Batch files..  making sure you don't have any KiXtart stuff out there..  With the newer versions of KiXtart, you may have to delete any cached information..  It has been about 5 years since I did work with KiXtart - Used to also be a Moderator on their board too.  :)

NET USE..  DELETE..  PERSISTENT > need to be sure that old drives are removed /re-added via the Registry..

You may do better going to a GPO?  Not that you want to re-invent the wheel or so to speak, but you seem to have an implied issue not picking up the bat script..
