How to Assign a Logon Script to a User's Profile Summary This article describes how to assign a logon script to a profile for a local user's account in Windows Server This logon script runs when a local user logs on locally to the computer. This logon script does not run when the user logs on to the domain.
This is a simple process, so we will not go through the pages here - but you can watch this video to see it done in real life. Walking through the configuration pages Once you completed the setup wizard, you are ready to build your configuration. If you prefer to see a video of using the basic pages, please refer to this video.
On the default "General" page, you define common settings, such as splash screen text and your company name and logo that you saw in the video above.
You should generally include your company logo, as this is shown on all user interfaces that the end user sees. On the general page, you can also test-drive your logon script using the "Execute" and "Debug" buttons without actually logging on to a computer.
If you need to troubleshoot on clients, you can temporarily enable step debugging and making errors show on clients. You can also set a user interface scaling. If your users generally have high resolution screens, you may want to make the user interfaces bigger.
User interfaces means anything the user sees, such as splash screen, printer menus, signature pop-ups and so forth. Cloud Services You have two cloud services that comes freely with your license, which you configure under "Cloud Services" on the "General" page shown above.
The first one is a cloud-based inventory named SkyBox, which has its separate web site at www. When you license FastTrack Automation Studio, you automatically get a free account at this web site. All you need to do to take a hardware and software inventory of computers, is to set the checkmark.
You can read more about the inventory on this page.
The other service you get for free with your licensing, is an automatic backup to the cloud. If you set the cloud backup checkmark, a backup of your configuration will automatically be uploaded to the cloud for easy restore.
This backup even includes previous versions, so you can restore your configuration from a previous date in case you need to revert to a previous version. The documentation for the cloud backup can be found here.
Sites Note in the left menu that you have a menu called "Sub Sites". Let's say you have 4 sites in your company and you know these by IP scopes. Then you can go two ways, either you simply merge everything into one script and use the IP scope condition - or you can use "Sub Sites" to create a logon script for each site based on IP scopes, meaning that on a specific site, the main script is executed plus this sites' "sub logon script".
A sub site allows you to open the very same Logon Script Builder as you see here, but all settings will then only apply to the site you open. You can also mix; for example shares could go on the main logon script and then printers could go on each sub site. As a rule of thumb, if you have complex printer mappings that you want to handle with FastTrack, sub sites is probably the way to go, especially if you use printer menus see further down.
Drive Mappings On the drive mappings page, you create a list of shares to connect. You simply create a full list of all possible shares for all users and then you set up a filter on each share, if required. You can filter on Active Directory groups and Organizations Unit of the executing computer or logged on user.
You can also filter on IP scope. If your drive mappings are complex, you use the sub sites features to segment your list. For simplicity, here's a simple list: The first button lets you add a SharePoint folder as a drive mapping. The way it works is that the user will be asked to log on to Office as part of the logon process to establish credentials.
If you use the OneDrive button, the user's OneDrive folder will be mapped to a drive letter. If you have a fat OneDrive client installed on all computers, you should prefer this for performance reasons.
The advantage of mapping to a drive letter is that you have central control over it and also, if you have clients that do not have the OneDrive fat client, this solves the problem. Note that under the Microsoft Office menu in the left, you can configure, if Office favors cloud storage the fat client or not.
