    Put the login script file in the netlogon share, and in the ADUC properties
    for the login script, just put the file name - no path.
    This isn't a group policy question; best to post non-GP issues in a regular
    Windows/AD group.

    Actually it is a group policy question, since it can be solved that way.

    You can create a policy and filter the permissions so that only that
    particular user acount is granted apply and read group policy. Use the log
    on script object.

    I usually say that if you are using filtering you are doing it wrong, but
    this is one of those blue moon uses that is appropriate.
    Let me know if you need more concise links to help you out.

    Good advice - although using ADUC works fine too, no?

    Actually, yes and no. While it is functional, it isn't practical on a large
    scale.
    It is too easy to lose track of things if done at a user level.
    I know if I had a call come in to place a script on the netlogon share and
    assign it to a user I would bang that task out and promptly forget who the
    user was.

    Do this too many times and you get an evil mess.

    I get a better global picture of what is going on with my network by using
    policies. The GPMC will let me see the policies in effect, and quickly
    modify or remove items.

    I think I've got it - I'm still working out group policy (which is why I
    lurk in here!) Thanks.

    Yep....I'm used to fairly small networks so this isn't a problem, but I can
    see that it would be.
