[THIN] Re: Domain logon script not running - not fixed... pls help

One more thought here . . . Have you looked at setting up local auditing =
on the server and checking through the event logs when the script fails =
to run for any errors?

May help shed some light on things. . .=20

Hi

Checked the PDC + BDC - rights look OK.  The "everyone" right has RX =
from=20
the repl directory downwards.  Checked the files also - the "everyone" =
right=20
has RX.  We haven't set any replication up.  We copy any policy =
file/scripts=20
manually as we only have 2 domain controllers..

Rose

is problem with replication and the permissions on the netlogon share??
  If the user does not have read rights for the share then they will not
be able to run the script.  Also I have seen a problem with the setup of
replication in that the admin somehow dropped all the scripts into the
export dir (%windir%\system32\repl\export). The netlogon share is
assigned to the import dir under repl.

Hello:

                 There definitely IS an NT policy setting, under "Windows NT
System" policy
section called "Run logon scripts synchronously".  Whether or not
setting
this value will solve your problem, I don't know, since I'm not really
sure
what your domain logon script is supposed to do.  However, I had a
similar
problem last year.  I wanted each user to have a different mapped
drive
based on group membership.  The problem, which I never really got
around to
solving, was that the environment variables in a logon script are
volatile
(meaning that after the logon script completed, whatever values were
set
simply go away).  This is a function of the Windows OS itself, so
there's
nothing that can be done about it (if you really want the KB articles,
I'll
look them up).

                 At any rate, what I was planning to do, if I had the time was 
to
test it,
was to ignore a separate logon script and application launching, and
simply
have a "batch" file spawn a separate process to launch the desired
application, which would inherit the parent process' environment.  I
was
planning on using Perl, but Kix may be able to do it too.  Anyway, I
hope
this helps.

Hi again

I thought this was fixed - ie it was working on a server in our prod
env.
As soon as I implemented the change to a production server, it stopped
working.  There is no difference between the 2 servers.  I looked thru
the
production Nt4 policies and there is nothing restricting logon scripts
from
running.  I even renamed the production policies (ntconfig.pol) to .old
so
they didn't run, deleted the user profile and tried again - same
issue.

In user manager, the users are set to run a login script which exists
on our
PDC + BDC's.  User logs on, published app starts but no domain logon
script
runs as it should.  If I switch the same published app back to the dev
environment, the script runs.  Something is obviously different on my
prod
servers but I have no idea.  Can someone please assist, getting urgent
- I
need to get the domain scripts running..

Server config is - Windows Terminal Server, SP6, GSNW, Metaframe XPe

Thanks
Rose

Rosemary,

I thought I'd seen something in the forums about this, but I haven't =3D
been able to find it yet so we'll go with some options that may or may
=3D
not get you what you want.=3D20

You could look at resetting how your pub app launches, I would create a
=3D
new app with all the old settings, but in place of file manager put a
=3D
custom CMD file. In the CMD, you could use 'timeout' available on =3D
thethin.net under utilities, to have the file 'pause' for a set few =3D
seconds, (long enough for your scripts to run) and then have it call =3D
your app.=3D20

I've also seen a post or two about folks making customizations to =3D
usrlogon.cmd to pause the login as well. I'd imagine 'Timeout' would =3D
work in this situation too, however this will effect all logins to the
=3D
server.=3D20

With Win2k, and it's policies you have the option for asynchronous =3D
logins (which means explorer waits to load until your login scripts =3D
finish). Once again without looking I don't recall if TSE policies have
=3D
support for this option or not, but it's worth a look through the ADM's
=3D
on thethin.net just in case.=3D20

I'm sure in playing around with these possibilities you'll find a =3D
working solution, others on this list may very well have some better =3D
ideas for handling this as well . . . of course a good number of them
=3D
are all at Iforum this week so you may have to wait a day or two for a
=3D
good answer . . :)

Good luck,

J

Hi

I seem to have it working now.  However, the application (File Manager
=3D
in=3D20
this case) is launching before the logon script has completed so the =3D
drive=3D20
mappings don't appear unless I press F5.  Has anyone seen this before.
=3D
Is=3D20
there a way to suppress the app from starting until the script is =3D
finished=3D20
so all letters are visible without the need to refresh??

Thanks
Rose

PS - Thanks for the info Jim, I shall take a look into Kix...

Rosemary,=3D3D20

Try setting the following settings in the registry on your server, it
will not only allow you to kill the NW login script, but should allow
you to set default tree and context settings for all users.=3D3D20

HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\servies\nwcworkstation\parameters\logon

logonscript - REG_Dword - '0'
PerferredServer - Reg_SZ - '*treename/context'

HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\nwcworkstation\parameters

DefaultLocation - REG_SZ - '*treename/context'
DefaultScriptOPtions - Reg_Dword - '0'

After making these changes, restart the gateway service for NW on the
server and the changes should take effect.=3D3D20

Combined with the last e-mail I sent, I suggest you take a good look
at
kix for doing this stuff. It can map netware and NT drives, but it can
only do it based on NT users and groups. You can't beat 'careware'
though, and it's got a very thorough word doc on how to get it to do
what you need, full of samples. Plus the website has a great forum
with
all sorts of scripting gurus willing to help out those in need.

Subject: [THIN] Domain logon scipt not running


I have a WTS Server with Metaframe XPe installed with Gateway services
for=3D3D20
netware.  I want to run the NT Domain login script only and it is =3D
not=3D3D20
running.  I have set the Preferred Server in the Gateway Services
config
to=3D3D20
None but Run Login Script is still ticked.

My domain logon script is not running for any user.  Is there an issue
with=3D3D20
the domain logon script if gateway services is installed but not
used??
90%=3D3D20
of our users require gateway services, the other 10% only require a
domain=3D3D20
logon script.

How can I get the domain logon script to run for these users??

Thanks
Rose

PS - Im feeling very blonde today........ sorry for the stupid
questions...
