Q

Lost login script path

When we run the login script on Win 2000 workstation, the command window displays C:winntsystem32cmd.exe rather than the path of the login script such as \servernamenetlogonlogon.bat. I know of another site where the correct server path is displayed. It's just not happening in our domain.

I'm assuming that you are configuring the logon script in the user's Active Directory object rather than in a group

policy. Otherwise the users would not see the console session at all.

I don't know of a standard logon script configuration where the actual path to the batch file rather than the path to the command interpreter is displayed. See if the administrators in the other system have been changing the configuration with DOSKEY or some other utility.
