    Server 2003 and VBS

    Between myself and the techie we've managed to cobble together a logon script, but for some reason it will not run when a user logs on!

    Running it once you have logged in works fine, and does everything we've asked it to do.

    Any idea's why it won't run?
    In the "Profiles" section of AD we've set the correct path to the .vbs file, but sill nothing

    Cheers in advance guys!

    I've only ever run VBS files at logon from the NETLOGON folder... then in AD I just link them by filename...

    so logon.vbs is in AD, the full path being \\domain.local\netlogon\logon.vbs

    Have you tried running the script by itself to make sure it works? and it's not being blocked by Software Restriction Policies etc.

    Could it be permissions?
    As lithium says, make sure the script is in Netlogon.

    Cheers for the quick replies guys.

    I checked the things you suggested and they were all OK, I've sorted the problem now by using GPO instead.

    Cheers,
