[Samba] Samba logoff script

If you are using xp clients, you can call a logoff script using local group
policy (or a logon script for that matter, if you have machines that are not
part of the domain yet, like I do...).

As part of your logon script import a registry key to set the logoff script.

Command: regedit.exe /s %logondrive%\logoff.reg

(%logondrive% being set as \\server\netlogon\scripts as part of my logon
script. )

Here's mine (named logoff.reg):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



"DisplayName"="Local Group Policy"
"GPOName"="Local Group Policy"


As part of your logon script copy the logoff.bat (or whatever you choose to
use), to the indicated location.
In this case: C:\WINDOWS\System32\GroupPolicy\User (the double slashes are
required above, but not here...)

Here's my logoff.bat:

CALL \\server\netlogon\scripts\logoff1.bat

Which is where I change whatever I want it to do at logoff....

If your not on XP, well, I think you can do it on W2K, the registry import
is a little different.
I am NOT any good at batch files or scripting.... Just the basic stuff. But
it works for me.

Is it possible to create a samba logoff script. I currently use netlogon for
a logonscript. I also want a logoff scipt to allow me to back certain files
up once a user logs off.

Is this possible? If so how?
