Is the logon script available directly in the root of the "netlogon"
share? You use %U.bat, where %U is replaced with the user name (for
example "agupta.bat"). Can you please check if files for each user exist
in /var/opt/samba/netlogon/ ?

To make sure that it's not a problem of variable substitution, temporarily:
- Change "%U.bat" to "script.bat".
- Reload Samba.
- Create the file "/var/opt/samba/netlogon/script.bat" with some
content. For example:
  net use X: \\cifs\tmp
- Verify that you can execute the script by double-clicking.
- Log on and see, if the X: drive is mapped.
