Hi Jeff;
If you surround your login script name and parameters in quotes, it should 
work; ie:

logon script = "%U.bat %m"

and the logon script:

ddmc.bat  (for example):

echo Hello Don, your machine name is %1

should display  "Hello Don, your machine name is <whatevermanchinename you
logged in from>

Hope this helps,

Subject: Logon Scripts Question

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the list, so I don't know if this has been discussed before, so
please bear with me if it has.  I have a question about the logon scripts.
It seems that if I set it to '%u.bat %m', then my logon scripts never
happen.  If I remove the %m, it works.  My question is: can I pass arguments
to a logon script, and if not, does anyone know of a work-around?  Thanks a

Jeff Lacy
