Setting the Logon Script Name for all users in a group

If you decide to implement logon scripts in your network, you need to assign the script to your users. Obviously, you don't want to do this by selecting users one at a time. In User Manager for Domains, it's possible to select multiple users by holding down [Ctrl] as you select users or holding the [Shift] key as you select a range of users.

Here's how you can select all users who are a member of a group:

  1. Open the User menu and select Users.
  2. Click the group you desire and click Select.
  3. You can click an additional group and press Select, then click Close.
  4. Open the User menu and click Properties.
  5. Make any changes you desire. For this example, click on Profile, enter the filename of the logon script, and click OK. Also, as long as the users are still selected, you can make any other desired changes as well.

Don't forget, too, that the logon script must be stored in systemroot\system32\repl\import\scripts!
