I have try serveral times to get kixtart 4.22 to map a driver for some group of user in a department (on a 2003 server platform) but it seems to work for me. I will be grateful if somebody give me a helping hand.
Cheers

Edmund

I have these 3 files logon.bat, logon.kix and the kix32.exe.
the content of the logon.bat is:
kix32.exe logon.kix.
The content of the logon.kix is:

use "g:" "\\server\everyone"

If InGroup("Finance")
use "h:" "\\server\Accounts"
EndIf

If InGroup("Plant")
use "i:" "\\server\Maintenance"
EndIf

Then i have place all these 3 files in the %systemroot%\Sysvol\sysvol\domain.com\scripts.
Then in group policy,under User Configuration, then windows settings then in Scripts(Logon), i have place all the 3 file s in there. But still not working.

in english, I can't help no matter how much I know about kix as I have no experience of kix in AD...

hmm... I probably should try that out though.
anyone willing to send me some hardware to run AD on?
I performed last test on P2 ~300MHz and it was ok.
anyone?

like said, the script seems ok and thus, the problem is not the script but your config to get it running on each logon.
that is AD issue.

Stick a tracer message after your map, that will show you why its failing ...

use "h:" "\\server\Accounts"
? @SERROR

No I'm not - but this should help prove that theory too. Edmund, if you see no tracer message at all, then you will know its the InGroup that isn't working.

no.
if you have tracer messages all over your script, then you know your script is not running at all.
right?

When i run the command kix32.exe logon.kix /d at the command prompt,
you goes through, map the drive for me and tells me "The operation completed successfully" .But when i logon, it doesn't map the drive.

In a command prompt (DOS Console) type SET

C:\SET <hit the enter key>

You should find a variable set for LOGONSERVER

Then type START \\the server name\NETLOGON

That should open a window with all your scripts, if you don't find WKIX32.EXE or KIX32.EXE and your script there then you don't have them in the correct location.
 
If they are there, then you have your LOGON script GPO setup incorrectly.

When i type C:\set then enter, i see the logonserver=\\SerPlant
Then when i type the START \\SerPlant\netlogon,
it opens up an explorer showing all the 3 files.
I am going to check with the GPO setup.
I have it under user configuration in the GPO. Should it be under the machine configuration or what?

hmm...
I think this one needs to be taken one step at a time.

remove everything from your logonscript setting except that bat.
