I wrote this vbs script to unmap and remap some network drives. I was going to implement it using AD. It didn't work. Browsing out to the scripts folder I can manually run it, but it won't run at log on. In the OU I'm going to User Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Scripts(Logon/Logoff).

Tried it the old way as well using the Logon Script in the user's properties sheet, Profile tab. As I said, I can browse out to it, run it, and everything is fine. It just won't run automatically.

Does anyone have an idea why?

I always use .bat scripts to map and unmap drives. One note that I have found is that any mapped drives need to be unmapped at logoff using a seperate script to eliminate some pesky error messages. I assuming all of the clients are win2000 or higher. You could if worse comes to worse use a bat script to launch the vbs one.
