For random users (wireless Lan) logon.bat does not run??? How to troubleshoot!
I have been having quite frankly a s**t time trying to replace 13 windows XP wireless laptops with 16 Windows 7 SP1 wireless laptops.
The logon times are slower and I get seemingly random laptops who refuse to run the logon.bat (from the users AD profile) one moment and then run it fine the next.
It tests I can have 5 laptops setup in my office connected to the AP on the optimum driver settings - files are copied to and from in tests at 8M/s.
If I simultaneosly logon a test student account at least 2-3 will not have the drives mapped.
Eventviewer seems to offer no clues.
Is it possible that network speed (or lack of) or network congestion can cause the logon.bat file to somehow timeout?
Interestingly when I logon as a domain admin (less GPO's applied) the drive mappings are always there...
It's the random nature of this issue that annoys me the most....and of course with fixed PC's or even using the laptops on a wired connection it all works fine.
Other than concede defeat and perhaps trying to set the mapped drives via a GPO what could I do to work-out WHY oh WHY the logon.bat does not run under certain *unknown conditions?
