you might give all users a default.bat
in this you may split running
other scripts by hostname username groupname
group can be matched with the ifmember.exe util
i.e default.bat

@echo off
REM default login script robert at schetterer.org
REM exec bat for logged in machine ( maybe software status for machine )
REM exec bat for login user
call %USERNAME%.bat
REM exec bat for different groups
REM ifmember.exe must be in the netlogon share download it at m$
REM be aware that ifmember will give result in the current win language
REM unlike normal dos
REM positive result from ifmember will match in errorlevel 1
ifmember /v /l "DOMAINNAME\Domain Users"
if errorlevel 1 call domainusers.bat
ifmember /v /l "DOMAINNAME\Domain Admins"
if errorlevel 1 call domainadmins.bat

and domainusers.bat

@echo off
REM install the pdfprinter drivers must allready be uploaded
REM typical use with cups-pdf
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /dn /n "\\YOUR-PDC-NAME\pdfprinter" /q
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n "\\YOUR-PDC-NAME\pdfprinter"
net use z: \\YOUR-PDC-NAME\users /persistent:no

with such logic you should be able to solve
login stuff NT Group related

Best Regards
