That's correct Craig. Scripts only execute during a "foreground" event (i.e.
machine startup or user logon or shutdown or logoff).

Subject: [gptalk] Script Execution in GPO


Just wanted to confirm something, if I [no matter where] add a script into a
GPO, when the GPO refreshes the script will not execute correct. Meaning the
only time a script would execute is essentially within logging on or off a
system. I was trying to deploy a script I wrote for DST for Windows 2000
Servers, I wanted to add it within a GPO, but thought the only way it would
execute was if someone were to log off or onto the system.


Thanks in advance,



Craig M. Buonora
