Local Group Policy logoff script

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.group_policy (More info?)

Is there a way to add a logoff script to the Local Group Policy of a
workstation without user intervention?

I need to push a local logoff script to 300+ workstations, and am looking
for an easy way to accomplish.

Thanks,

    Why not use domain level GP? Domain GP is meant to be managed centrally,
    which is what you want to achieve.

    Yes, but we currently are not in a domain, and I would like to push this out
    before our AD migration. I would like to try and mitigate a major
    compatibility issue with some software we're using.

    I am also looking for a way to do the exact thing that you are doing.

    If you can guarantee that each machine that you are running on will already
    have some Group Policy running on them, then you should be able to make a
    copy of the c:\WINNT\System32\GroupPolicies\USER\Scripts\Scripts.ini off of a
    system in which this policy has been hand created via the GPEdit tool and
    copy it to the machines that you want to configure to have that same
    logon/logoff policy(You can't write to the file with >> due to security
    reasons, but I think you can copy a new one over it).

    The big problem I am having, is that I can't guarantee that the group policy
    logon/logoff has been initialized on the machines that I will be running my
    script on.

    I am currently trying to do various things with the registry so that the
    script that I'm creating will not only setup my logon/logoff script policies,
    but also initialize any windows 2k machine to use logon/logoff policies if
    they haven't already been configured to do so.

    If I figure it out(Fingers are crossed), i'll Post how to do it.

    Have you had any success with this? I am looking to do nearly the same
    thing.

    Thanks!
