After connecting to Essentials Server, user logon script no longer runs.

I am about connection Windows 7 workstations to a Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard with Essentials Services established which was newly added into our existing level 2003 AD.

The first workstation did well. It connects and user logon script is executed which mainly attaches network drives.

The second workstation wouldn't connect. It has previously "seen" a 2008 Essentials server, so I had to remove the workstation from both DNS and AD Computers and Users to make it connect.
It connects now, but the user logon script is ignored.

If I go to the DC\sysvol and browse to the folder with the script, I can double-click this and it runs and the mapped drives are established, so the script can run.

In Group Policy Object Editor the script is located under:
  User Configuration, Windows Settings, Scripts (Logon/Logoff), folder Logon:Path to scriptHow can I debug this so the script will run again at logon?

Try taking a look at the event log under:

 Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\Group Policy\Operational

This may shed some light on the issue.

Nope, only a handful error 7016 during the last eight hours regarding IE extensions:

Internet Explorer Branding behandling af udvidelser blev gennemført på 15 millisekunder.

All others are informal.

I found out that for some reason, when installing the connector and Launchpad, the installer appends the two user accounts mydomain\username and mymachine\username to the Administrators group. As you know, when an admin logs on, network mappings are ignored.
I removed the two accounts from Administrators and now drives are mapped as before.

Are you aware of this behaviour?

Something tells me it is not so fantastic to attach a server with the Essentials Experience to an existing setup.
