NETLOGON using ".bat" (batch) files is problematic - converting the
logon scripts to ".vbs" (visual basic script) is recommended.  There
are security toggles that will prevent the workstation from running a
BAT file on a network share - while VBS scripts will work.

When this happened to me I spent a lot of time chasing the server side
- when it was a client side thing that just happen to bite when the
server upgrade was performed.
