Which LOGIN.BAT file am I using, and in which folder is it?

In Active Directory, while looking at the properties for a user under the profile tab, I noticed that our login script has a file called LOGIN.BAT. There is no path pointing to this file, and when I did a search, I saw that we have several LOGIN.BAT files. Which one are we actually using? Or what folder is this section defaulting to in order to be able to pick up the LOGIN.BAT file?

The logon script file should be located within the shared Scripts folder off of one of your domain controllers. When a user logs on, the system will search the Scripts folder first for the indicated logon script.
