    Logon.bat query

    Apologies in advance folks if the following question seems dreadfully naive to many of you. We have a Win2K server and Win XP Pro SP2 workstations the latter have been suffering slow log on over recent months, I suspect this is since the logon.bat file was altered to read:

    #echo off
    net use lpt2: \\wcs-server01\BrotherH /yes /************\***********
    net use lpt3: \\its21\BrotherH /yes
    net use m: \\wcs-server01\test /yes
    net use S: \\wcs-server01\Shared /yes

    I do want to define a default printer and alternative printer. The default is connected to the server so would be \\wcs-server01\Brother hl-5130 series
    the alternate is a network attached printer and comes up as
    \\wcs-server01\HP Officejet Pro K550 Series

    I can see that clearly the net use lpt3: \\its21\brotherH is erroneous now as that workstation no longer has any printer connected.

    I€™m not sure why net use lpt2 & 3 appear, why is it 2 and 3 €“ the workstation I€™m sending this message from has the brother coming up as lpt1 and the HP as a TCP/IP port which I have reserved at the server as **.***.**.***?

    I€™m also unsure what I€™d need to write to get the correct printers listed in the file.

    I recommend Rics VBS printer script for setting up printers.

    Re: Logon.bat query

    I know this isn't much help but have you tried using a kixtart script instead to map your printers on logon?

    The managability makes it so easy to use...

    If you would like, I could send you mine as an example, and then all you would need to do is call the kixtart script into the logon.bat like this:

    \\yourlogonserver\NETLOGON\kix32.exe \\yourlogonserver\NETLOGON\theprinterscript.kix

    While the scripting language can do all sorts, I only use it for printer driver installation and port assigning during logon.

    http://www.kixtart.org

    Commands like http://www.kixtart.org/index.asp?p=c...#_Toc146265719 are what you would need, but if it looks all to confusing, I can post up or PM you my script as an example.

    Regards
    Nath.

    Re: Logon.bat query

    Crumbs, that all seems complicated and way beyond my current ability! Rick Charlton kindly built a vbs script which I currently use on individual workstations to change printers. Would I be right in thinking that if I have that vbs file in the Netlogon folder on the server and list it in the logon.bat file that it would run ok from there, if so what would I need to write in the logon.bat file to achieve this?

    As to my existing logon.bat file would I be OK to just take the incorrect line out?
