Look for scripts in your user object settings

Updated: March 10, 2009

Follow these steps to examine your user objects to see if you are using scripts.

To examine your user objects
  1. On a domain controller in the same forest as Windows EBS, log on as a domain administrator, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.

  2. In the left pane, expand the domain where Windows EBS is installed, and then click Users. In the right pane, you should see a list of users and groups in this domain.

  3. To separate the users from the groups, click the Type column. Users will now be at the bottom of the list after groups.

  4. Double-click each user’s name to open Properties, click the Profile tab, and then inspect the Logon script field. If you see scripts listed for any user, you can migrate them to Windows EBS. Note the following:

    • Where the scripts are stored.

    • Which users had the Logon script field set.

    All logon scripts for user objects must be stored in a folder under your domain’s NETLOGON folder (\\domainname\NETLOGON).

  5. Inspect the Profile Path and Home Folder fields. If you see scripts in these fields, you have roaming profiles and/or remote home folders that you can migrate to Windows EBS. Note the locations of your roaming profiles and home folders.
