  • Logon Script Directory

    I manage 3 domains in the same forest.
    Anytime I edit a user logon script, it always defaults to the domain I am logged into. Does the following work? I guess I might be using the syntax incorectly.

    "If \netlogon (or any other path) is entered, the current user's server, plus the entered path will be used."

    The only option that would be available is to specify a server path in Tools->Settings->User under the Default Login Script Directory. This would only help with those that are on a particular server, though and not all three.

      That is the way I have it now.

      So when your help says 'current user' that means me. Not the user I am working with. correct?

        Actually, no that is the user you are viewing. I believe I mis-read that.

        Hyena should look on Repl$\scripts on the server that the user record was retrieved from.

        In the case of different domains, this should use the server that it pulled the user record from in each domain. In your case, this might be the same server if all users can be pulled from the same AD server.

        So, first, do you have anything right now in that field in Tools->Settings->User for a Default Path?

        Second, if you view a user from one domain, what is the server listed in the title bar of that window? It will look like: User Properties for X on Y.

        Compare the server listed to the server listed when you view the properties for a user in another domain.

          2000 Domain Controllers don't use Repl$\scripts anymore. Its \\servername\netlogon

          I orginally had \\servername\netlogon which works for my domain I am logged into.
          Tried it blank. Doesn't work.

          When I view a user on another domain, is show the correct domain.

            What happens when you enter \netlogon in that field?

            Send this answer and a screen shot showing the User Properties for a user in your domain, and a user in one of these other domains to [email protected].

              Thanks, using \netlogon also gets an error when I try to edit the scripts. Still defaults the server that I am logged into.

                Just tried the beta. Using \netlogon does correctly allow me to edit a script. But when I try to find a script. It defaults to my domain controller.

                    Thanks for letting us know. We will also patch v5.0 with this, but are waiting to make sure the other fixes are OK. In the meantime, the beta is OK and stable to use.
