Is there a vista/Server 2008 requirement for that to work? My domain is
primarily comprised of XP SP2 and dc's are Server 2003.

You can do all that and more with the new Group Policy Preference
extensions that were added with Server 2008/Vista SP1. Will require you
to push the client side extension installer out to your clients
beforehand, however.

Subject: [gptalk] Login Scripts N' Such


After browsing through a few of the login scripts that we use, I have
made a realization that vb scripts for logins may not be necessary. My
login scripts basically just create URL shortcuts on the desktop and map
users to specific drives. I was wondering if it's completely necessary
for me to continue using vb scripts or if it's possible for me to
completely do away with them and replace them for GPOs. I was thinking I
could establish all the shortcuts as IE bookmarks through IE Maintenance
options and then have a single vb script that deletes existing desktop
URLs and copies whatever is in the Favorites of the current user to the
desktop. Does this sound like its possible? Is it possible to setup
mapped drives through GPO?
