kix script not running all the time
I have been working on a problem with Microsoft since about October of 2007 and I've pretty much given up that I will get it solved so I'm turning to you all for suggestions.
Here's the problem. Our students (10,000+) logon and some students find out that they are missing their mapped drives and/or printers and/or homepage setting. This happens to about 5 - 10 students per site (21 sites) per day. If you do the math, this isn't happening to that many students percentage-wise but it is very annoying and frustrating for students and staff. As a part of the logon process, we setup a Group Policy that calls out a bat file that runs the kix script that assigns mappings, printer and homepages based on group memberships. There aren't any problems with the kix script or it wouldn't work for anyone.
All of our students use mandatory profiles. We have 4 domain controllers running W2K3SP2. The kix executable, kix config file and bat files resides in the netlogon share that is replicated amonst all 4 domain controllers. The mandatory profile also resides in the netlogon share. The last bit of information is that the workstations are XPSP2 and the workstation are all Dell Optiplex 260-755 models.
Again, I've been working with Microsoft on this issue since last October. If anyone has any ideas, I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
