There must not be a space between H: and \\pdc\test.

For user, GP > User Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts > Logon /
Logoff must be used. For machines, it must be setup under Computer
configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts > Startup / Shutdown.

Make sure that the scripts end in .BAT, .CMD or .VBS (default wscript).

Use gpresult on the client machine that is not receiving GP correctly. Check
Event Viewer for more clues.

Do you have Win 2000 or XP clients?

One more thing. H: is per default assigned as the drive letter for home folder.
Try using another drive letter and see if this helps.

Do keep us posted.

I suspect the bat file may not be located in the correct place for GP to
properly run it. To verify this do the following:
Edit the group policy in question and go to where you set the logon policy.
When you get to the point where you can see the entry that shows the bat
file that should be run:
Click on the "Show Files" button. The .bat file should be listed in the
browse box that opens.
If it is not then you need to copy the .bat file into that location and that
should solve the problem.
If it is listed in that browse box then I have pointed you in the wrong
direction and please accept my apologies.

It appears that no GPO has been applied for the currently logged in user.

A couple of checks:
1. review input from dclab (location placement of login script)
2. verify that the user*is found in the OU where GP is created
3. confirm that the user is either explicitly listed to receive the GP in
the OU (Read
and Apply Group Policy) or is a member of one of the groups with these
rights
(e.g. Authenticated Users)

* target to receive GP

Keep us posted. HTH.

Thanks,
regarding to your suggestion of a couple of checks:
1. Sorry, I don't understand what you mean exactly, but the alllogon.bat is
only contained as follow:
NET USE I: \\PDC\TEST

and TEST folder already had Authenticated users security
2, 3. Users already logon to the PDC and it already exist in the list of
Active Directory Users

I don't know what should I do? .. please advise .. many thanks in advance
Regards
Winanjaya

With the PC logged in try to run that command does it work? is that
share there?


If so, check the event viewer for usernv? errors, also when the PC is
logged in goto dos prompt and issue gpupdate command and then check
event viewer on both PC and server.

1. dclab (location placement of login script)
Exact steps: GP > User Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts
(logon/logoff).
Double click logon on right hand pane > Show Files. Windows Explorer will
open listing a path similar to
\\your_domain_name\sysvol\your_domain_name\Policies\{1234...}\User\Scripts\Logon.
Copy the batch file you already have to this path or create one (e.g.
alllogon.bat).

Continue from the last step, click Add > Browse and select alllogon.bat. The
default path is the one indicated previously. You should use this instead of
the one where alllogon.bat is currently located (to allow AD to manage auto
for you).

2. using "Active Directory Users & Computers" tool, assume that you have
created an OU (Organizational Unit) call DEMO. The user USER01 account is
placed inside this OU. A security group GROUP01 has also been created in the
same OU, and USER01 is made a member of it.

Right mouse click the DEMO OU > Properties > Group Policy > New. Give the
new GP a name,
say GP_User_Logon. Click Edit and execute the steps in #1 above.

3. Once step #2 is completed, make sure that GP_User_logon is highlighted >
Properties > Security tab > Add > select GROUP01. With the group still
highlighted, make certain that "Read" and "Apply Group Policy" are ticked on
the Allow column. Click OK all the way back to commit changes.

Step # 3 is optional if you are comfortable to use the default (where
Authenticated Users will get the GP). However, it is included for
completeness in order to allow you to control exactly who will be affected by
the GP you created.


Do keep us posted on any developments.
