Kathy,

Welcome to the board.

Are you running the KXRPC Service on your Servers for you 9x clients?

In the FAQ Section, there is an article that talks about this - KXRPC - Everything you wanted to know about KXRPC.

Using WINSET.EXE and PUTINENV.EXE, you may want to look at the following article - 0120 Solve those logon script problems.

What exactly happens when you run the script. The way you wrote it, something must happen. For example, if you log in as domain admin, does it display the domain admin text or the domain user text? Or does KiXtart just exit with an error message? If you put DEBUG ON into the first line of your KiXtart script it'll allow you to step through the script line by line.

1. Kixtart v4.11 on Win2k server \netlogon
2. Kixrpc service running
3. Users win98
4. Copy of kx*.dlls are on user's local c:\windows\system folder.
5. Copy of kx*.dlls are in \netlogon
6. Can run any script commands except INGROUP
7. INGROUP("TEST") = 1
Display "Works.txt"
ELSE
Display "No.txt"
ENDIF

Everything in the script works except INGROUP.
Only one INGROUP statment. I need to pick out the users in a particular group in order to map a drive and copy an desktop icon lnk to their desktop. I can map drives and copy icons all day, just cannot get INGROUP to do it just for the ones in the group. Global group.

Try this script and report back:
code:
DEBUG ON
? 'Testing INGROUP function'
IF INGROUP('Domain Users')
? 'Account is in "Domain Users" group'
ELSE
? 'Account is not in "Domain Users" group'
ENDIF
? 'Press [ENTER] to continue'
gets $enter

Kkathy,
If there's a NetWare client, check the provider order issue.

If you don't have the KXRPC running on BDCs then that could also be the issue.

Kathy, you mentioned that you have KXRPC running on your PDC ... but do you have it running on ALL you DC's, or does your domain just have the one DC ?

Let me try and put this clearer:
1. Win2k server PDC/SDCs running KIXRPC services
2. Users on Win98
3. Kixtart v 4.11
4. kx*.dlls are on the \netlogon and users c:\windwos\system folders.
5. All script command/functions that I have tried work except INGROUP.

Sample:
IF INGROUP("TEST")
Display "ITWORKS.txt"
ELSE
Display "DOESNOT.txt"
ENDIF

USER is in the TEST Global Group in AD.
I always get the DOESNOT.TXT file on the screen.
What am I doing wrong?

Have you logged on AFTER changing the group membership? If you add yourself to a group after logon INGROUP doesn't see it. INGROUP works off the Token cache and user security token which contain the global group to which the use belongs.

Kathy,

Did you create Local Groups in User Manager/Active Directory Users and Computers? As I remember it, it is necessary for Group Detection in Win9x. In other words the Domain Admins Local is a "member" of Domain Admins.

For example..

code:
 IF @inwin = 1
IF INGROUP("Domain Admins")
DISPLAY "\Admins.txt"
ELSE
DISPLAY "\Users.txt"
ENDIF
SLEEP 3
ELSE
IF INGROUP("Domain Admins Local")
DISPLAY "\Admins.txt"
ELSE
DISPLAY "\Users.txt"
ENDIF
SLEEP 3
ENDIF

HTH,

Kent

put a copy of 4.11 in a folder on the C: drive and run a test script from there. Use an out-of-the-box group like Domain Admins.

If that works, it could be a DLL version issue.

Also check network protocols and provider order.

Does anyone have v4.11 INGROUP working? I have the kixrpc service running on both dcs. Message in her from Bruno says his is not working either. He says older version works ok. What version are you using that do work.

I have v4.11 w/win2k servers and win98 users. Script on win2k server /netlogon

to kathy's question direct answer...

I have ingroup working just fine.

only difference is that I have no win9x machines on my task range. meaning, that I have successfully removed every win9x machine from our network logonscripts. there is still 2 or 3 machines with those systems but they have to manage on their own...
