Hi,

I was wondering if someone can tell me the proper setup to have kixtart run in a mixed win2k and NT4 environment. We recently upgraded to a Mixed Win2k Domain and Kixtart had been running fine, but suddenly today it is not running on any of the NT4 DC. I want to make sure that I'm setting it to replicate properly between the Win2k PDC Emulator and the NT4 DCs or if anyone has any ideas why the script would not be running at all would be much appreciated. I've already stopped the netlogon to all of the NT4 DCs, but as we only have 2 Win2k DCs, I'm afraid they might get overloaded. Any help would be appreciated greatly!

This is explained in both the KiXtart Manual and the FAQ Forum.

The executables and logon script will normally reside in the NETLOGON folder of all DCs and be called from the clients.

Yes I know that they reside in the NETLOGON folder, however this doesn't help me to troubleshoot why it suddenly is not working in NT4 but works fine in Windows 2000 as all of the files are still there and if I do a manual:

\\servername\netlogon\kix32.exe profile.kix

it will run the script, just it's not doing it automatically on the NT4 machines.

Please provide details of the symptoms of it not working. Why do you say that. There has to be something that makes you say it no longer works.

Please provide specifics. How do you have the logon script property configured? Whjat changed in the environment around the time your issue arose?
