Forcing the issue
Running Win Server 2003 / XP Clients
I have a vbs set as login script in GPO that Maps a drive and copies shortcuts from that drive to thier Desktop. ( this way I can just add any icon to the share and all students get that icon). Normally this works slick.
Change made :
I recently removed StubPath entries from the clients registries to improve login speed, which it did pretty drastically.
Now the clients log in near instantaneously, however it is so fast that it doesn't even map their drive, so they don't get thier shortcuts. My current solution is to have them log off and log right back on, it then maps the drive and everything is happy.
Is there a way either in vbs or in GPO to ensure the login script runs through completely before it is allowed to continue logging in?

Do they all use the same profile? you could add the shortcuts on the desktop in their

you can set it to map the drive in the profile also and it will remember this for next time they log on.

Or use a redirected desktop?

Computer Configuriation --> Admin Templates --> System --> Logon --> Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon
Enable this setting in gpo and see if this helps

Agreed. Or even if you use UNC paths in the script instead of a mapped drive.

Thank you gecko this seems to have done the trick. I guess before logons were taking long enough that it wasn't a problem, this fixed it though.
