I am trying to deploy my logon.bat that calls my kixtart.kix script through a group policy.

The servers are windows 2000 server and the client is windows NT 4.0 Workstation.

I have tried putting several things in the logon key in the group policy screen and nothing works when the user logs on. I don't get any errors or anything but it doesn't run the script either.

Please help!

Why don't you show us your logon.bat & your kix script?

If I deploy the logon.bat or the kixtart.kix script to the user individually it works perfectly without any problems.

In the Group Policy Logon key I tried adding it there and it just doesn't work.

Hi there,

Group policies cannot be applied to NT4 clients unfortunately [Smile] You'll have to work with good ol' poledit [Wink]

Only 2k and newer clients work with 2000/2003 GPO's

Well you can't do that if the servers are 2K can you? I don't have a NT 4 Domain Controller to handle NT 4 policies. I do know you can deploy policies to an NT4 box within a 2000 domain.

And the comment is a non-issue. But Thanks!

Forget about NT4 policies... forget about GPO logon scripts for legacy clients...

It just will not work.

FDISK the clients or specify the logon script in User Manager.

Assuming you have a domain controller, you assign the login script in the 'User Manager for Domains' or whatever that thingy is called on the domain controller.

So, why do you need to go to every workstation to implement a logon script?

You do not have to go to every computer. You can do it from "Active Directory Users and Computers".

There have also been scripts posted that will do it for you.

In our organization we have many departments that use different mapped drives and printers based on their departments. My logon script checks for the ingroup and does it accordingly.
We have a mixture of 9x, NT4, 2000 Pro and XP Pro clients. All 2000 Server Domain Controllers running AD.

Ask NTDOC, he was the guy that wanted to script it.

Yes: Back to square one and assign the logon.bat to each user in your AD domain. Is that too much?
