If there's no DC available and the user logs in under cached
credentials, the scripts won't run of course.  One thing you could do to
check for this issue is to log people's logins to see if their scripts
are running.  It could be as simple as adding something like this to
their login scripts.

echo Login begin:
rem all the normal login script stuff here
echo Login end:

Then when Joe user calls up and says he doesn't have a drive, you can
see if his script ran today.

Another thing you could do is log all the responses from the login
scripts.  I think that this would involve calling a script from a login
script though.  Like, if the user's current logon script is logon.bat,
you'd have to change his logon script to getlogon.bat with contents as


If I make no sense, I apologize.  I was reading your message, replying
to it, and thinking about it at the same time.
