I'm trying to use Kyders script for automatic outlook configuration. I just can't seem to get it to work. I'm basically trying to get my enterprise away from batch scripts so I'm redoing everything with kixtart. I've got the drive mappings and citrix config working perfectly, but this outlook script is giving me some trouble.
environment:
Exchange 2003
Server 2003 Ent.
Clients are win2K w/outlook 2002
The exchange server name is: EXCHANGE1
Here is the script:

I realize you may be in a rush or under pressure but multiple bumping of a topic especially in the same day is frowned upon on every board I've ever been on, including here.

The nature of this script has only a few members that are familiar with the whole process. You will have to be patient and wait for one of them to come by and see it and then see if they can offer you help.

Thanks guy.

NuclearKitten,
In your first post you say you are having trouble with the outlook portion of your script but you don't say what trouble you are having, the folks that can help you are more likely to respond if you did.

I'd say the same as Jooel, you've only got a part of the function.

i went back to the original script. the only thing i changed is the servername. but still not working...

it's got to be something simple...something i'm over looking. but i'm just pulling my hair out here. i could have just configured all the clients by hand by now...but i'd like to learn to use the script anyway.

Maybe I just don’t get it but why all these big scripts for outlook config?

All I do is create one (or more if you have some kind of custom settings per department or site) default PRF file and set the registry as shown below to tell outlook to use the prf specified.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/HA011364251033.aspx

Quote:

....
Configuring Outlook user profiles by using a PRF file
You can use a PRF file in several ways to update Outlook 2002 profiles:

Import the PRF file in the Custom Installation Wizard or Custom Maintenance Wizard to specify profile settings in a transform, and then include the transform when you deploy or update Outlook.
Specify the PRF file as a command-line option for Outlook.exe. For example:
outlook.exe /importprf
\\server1\share\outlook.prf
Launch the PRF file directly on users' computers by double-clicking the file.
Configure the registry to trigger Outlook to import the PRF file when Outlook starts up. You can use the Add/Remove Registry Entries page in Custom Installation Wizard or the Custom Maintenance Wizard to deploy these registry key options to your users. You can also use the wizards to distribute the PRF file to users by using the Add/Remove Files page.
Delete the following registry key value : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Setup\First-Run.
In the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Setup subkey, set the value of ImportPRF to a string value that specifies the name and path of the PRF file. For example, set ImportPRF to \\server1\share\outlook.prf.

Welcome NK,

the 'script' you posted in the first post is far away from being executable. Even if the function OUTLOOK() (most probably written functional by Kent) was posted completely (proper closing endselect, endif AND endfunction), it would do nothing as there is NOTHING in it that uses the function. So either you haven't posted your script completely for whatever reason there might be OR you haven't understood the concept of using UDFs.

Please make clear how we can be of help.
Thanx

J.

ok - i wasn't aware of the fact that UDF's were to be called from a kix scripts. i'm tring to figure out how to call them and i found the FAQ. however, i'm having a hard time making sense of it.

i saved the kyder script as outlook.udf

how would i execute it from my other script? i tried following the faq - but it's just not making sense. my head is totally fried at this point. i've got the script in the netlogon share alond with the UDF, but the UDF wont execute.
Code:
break on
;placing the CALL here works
call @lserver + 'Netlogon\outlook.udf'
get $_
Exit 1
 


could someone please hold my hand through this? i feel like a total moron.

with the call line you just inject the udf source to your script during runtime.
to execute the udf, you need to add anywhere in your script after that injection a simple line of:
Code:
outlook()


to explain a little further, UDF is just a function declaration. it says what is the name of the function and it's parameters and what to do when it's called.
when you have defined it, you can use it the same as any kixtart internal function, like readvalue()
the only difference is that readvalue() is already declared inside the kixtart executable and UDF is something you define/declare yourself.

oh..i think i see what you are saying. so it would be like this?
Code:
break on
;placing the CALL here works
call @lserver + 'Netlogon\outlook.udf'
get $_
Exit 1
outlook()
 


the call loads the function, then the outlook() actually executes it?

No, the script hits exit before that and goes bye-bye.

so, your original try at it would have worked fine.

just to mess with your mind, you have other options than just call.
you could use include instead.
include loads the file before execution, so it doesn't matter in which part of the script you use it.
also, included UDF files do really get included and if you use tokenize, they are inbuilt with the tokenized script, so need for separate files.

or you could use the simple way of just pasting the udf at the bottom of your script file. that way you don't need to care about additional files at all. on the other hand, if your script grows, it might get a bit hard to find anything in the script, so it can be a downside as well.
