[gptalk] Re: Start up script GP

Glad you got it working but my guess would have been the Msgbox calls. You
can't run those in a startup script since there is no UI to receive them. I
suspect the script was just hanging on those.

I got it working.  I had to remove the group membership portion of the
script.  

 If objFilesystem.FileExists("C:\windows

\saplogon.ini") Then
             objFilesystem.DeleteFile "C:\windows\saplogon.ini", True
     End If
 
    objFilesystem.CopyFile "\\beaches\NETLOGON\saplogon.ini", "C:\windows\",
True


This is the working script.

Thanks for all your help.

Are you actually seeing the MsgBox prompts when you reboot the machine? Did
you have that in the original script you were having problems or did you add
those for troubleshooting after you implemented it as a startup script?

This is the script.

If objFilesystem.FileExists("C:\windows\saplogon.ini") Then
msgbox("1")
         objFilesystem.DeleteFile "C:\windows\saplogon.ini", True
msgbox("2")
     End If
 msgbox("3")
    objFilesystem.CopyFile "\\beaches\NETLOGON\saplogon.ini",
"C:\windows\saplogon.ini", True
msgbox("4")

The message boxes tell me if it ran.

Okay I have done what you have mentioned.  It has ran today.  To be sure, I
rebooted the machine and checked again.  It has given me the lastest time.
The path is there and everything seems to be running.

What is the next step.

At the workstation, you can run RSOP.MSC and drill into the scripts section
(it looks just like the GP Editor namespace). It will tell you if the script
was being processed and when it last ran.

 

Or, if you're not at the workstation, using GPMC's GP Results Wizard to
connect remotely to the machine and find out which GPOs and settings applied
during the last processing cycle.

How do I do that?  I have never done that before.

As Darren and I both suggested, also check RSOP and make sure the script is
actually being applied.

On windows vista, it works perfectly, but on windows XP it is not working at
all.

This is very weird.  I will try to put access on domain computers and we
will see what happens.

If "Authenticated Users" has read access that should suffice. However, I've
seen weirdness before where access is denied until you actually add "Domain
Computers." Startup scripts run under the  NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM context which
is the equivalent of the machine's computer object.

 

If it is a relatively small file, I would add it to the scripts/startup
folder of the GPO and copy it from there. Then you can be sure the machine
account is not being denied access. Also check RSoP and make sure the script
is actually being executed.

The location it is coming from is the netlogon folder that everyone has
access to.  I do know that the script works because as a Domain admin it
copies the file over fine.  It's only the users.

Are you sure that your script is actually copying the file successfully?
Does the "Domain Computers" group have read access to the location you are
trying to copy from?

I have done a gpupdate /force on the test computer.  I have restarted the
test computer.  It still does not work.

Any ideas?

Yes, startup scripts won't run at background refresh, even if you do a
gpupdate /force command. The machine will process the script policy but
won't actually execute the script unless you reboot.

So you are saying for me to reboot the PC on top of replicating to all the
other domain controllers.

Hello,

I have been trying to copy over a file to c:\windows before the users log
in.  All users have domain users rights.  (no access to anything)  I need a
file copied over to c:\windows.  I have added a start up script to the
computer configurations but when I do a gpresult it does not apply.  I have
force a replication but it still does not seem to work.

Dave
