inasmuch as the mounts tend to be persistent, you might not be executing
the logon script by any of the users but think you are.

Why not put a break or something in the logon script so it stays on
screen waiting for input or something so you know that it runs for other

As far as why it might not be running logon script for valid user

- tdb permits different logon script per user. have you verified with

- computer is properly joined or connected to domain controller and is
providing logon from cache

- logon script created with unix line breaks instead of Windows line
breaks (bad)
