No, but you can 'roll your own' ...
There are several techniques you can use :
1) Use pre-exec to run a server based script and
generate a per-user (or per machine) logon script
at each logon. You then have access to everything
the host (Linux/Unix) system knows about the
2) Use the basic batch file commands to test for
various things and call other batch files as
required - search the archives for ifmember.exe
which is useful for this. You then have every
machine/user use a common logon.bat and take
runtime decisions on what to do.
3) Use a client side scripting environment such
as Kixtart and write much more complex scripts.
