Where is the script located ? Netlogon ?

What is it supposed to do ?

AD (Windows or Samba) uses SIDs, so a Windows user should see all users 
and groups, but only on a Windows computer.

It's a bit different on a Unix domain member, Samba makes domain users 
and groups into Unix ones, but not all of them.

I hope you can see from that it depends on where the script is run and 
how, if it will work.

A bit more info will help ;-)


Yes, the script is in Netlogon.  It maps a bunch of shares to drive letters and remaps local user folders to folders on the server.  Even though the script doesn't seem to run for all users I can still get to the shares on the network.  
How would I go about creating or managing users with this Samba setup under Windows.  Is that possible?

Any ideas as to why some of my users don't seem to run the script in the Netlogon share?  Is there a way in Windows to check and see if an attempt was make to run the script?  Or on Linux?
