Ah, thanks John (and others).
You are correct... it is just a fileserver. I hadn't realised that just connecting to a share was not the same as logging in (I'm quite new to Linux/Samba). So I will now look at whether I need to set it up as a domain controller or if I will just leave a batch file in a common directory for users to sync their clocks when needed.
Again, many thanks for your assistance.

What is "the" scripts directory? You can't just put the login script in an arbitrary directory which happens to be named "scripts".

Exactly. [netlogon] must be a file share defined on your samba server. Then you need to put the logon script somewhere in that share, so that client PCs can connect to [netlogon] to access it.
>My smb.conf "Globals" section is:-
You can't use the "login script" unless users are actually "logging on" to the server. Perhaps I'm missing something, but this doesn't look like a domain controller (or win9x logon server) configuration to me. It looks like an ordinary fileserver setup. Connecting to a share on a fileserver is not "logging in".
