I have two print servers. I need to move a couple hundred people from
pointing at the old printer shares to the shares on the new print server.
The old one runs W2k and the new box runs W2k3. Our domain is running w2k3
on the DCs. I have written a batch file that will convert users' network
printers called convert.bat. I created a GPO and linked it to an OU with a
few users in it for testing purposes. The GPO shows as being enabled AND
enforced, but the .bat file refuses to run. I have placed it in the SYSVOL
folder, the default locations that come up when you browse for a logon
script, even in other shares I have created. I have also inserted the file
into specific users' AD profiles to run from there. NOTHING happens.
However, if I navigate to the SYSVOL share on a user's computer and manually
start the file, it runs perfectly. SO the good thing is that i wrote a file
that works, but the bad news is that it won't push out on the domain to
automatically update users.
I have told the logon script to run visible, and I've not seen it. So
either the policy isn't working at all, or the file just isn't starting up.
