i think that the latest versions of samba have macro substitutions 
carried out on the actual .bat file before it is downloaded to the client.

try putting NET TIME \\%L /SET /YES^M in the actual "global.bat" file, using

if that doesn't work, it will be a very simple matter to put a few lines 
of code in yourself, to do this substitution.  i believe that you will be 
able to find the location yourself by doing "grep lp_logon_script *.c
