Because my book defines "logon drive" as "Sets the drive to be used as a
home directory for domain logons by Windows NT/2000/XP clients." With a
default of, you guessed it, Z: ! That was why I was winding up with two
"home" directories one on S: (from my bat file) and one on Z: from the
default value logon drive. 

I will take the "exit" statement to heart and add one in on my file. I
do not have one currently.

My problem wasn't so much the "persistence" of Z: as I didn't want it in
the first place! <grin>

Anyway, all's well that ends well. Now I'm off to slay my next Dragon!

Can you explain why you thing that is true?

I HAD a "problem" where Z: was also persistent.  I fixed the problem
by making sure logon.bat ended with an "exit" statement.

After 10-60 seconds (really not sure how long), drive Z: would

Here is my logon.bat...

net use /persistent:no

net use P: \\mutt\public

if not "%OS%"=="Windows_NT" goto byebye

ifmember "NO-CATS\Domain Admins"
if not errorlevel 1 goto byebye

regedit /s "\\mutt\netlogon\WinXP_SignOrSeal.reg"
