This is a super quick tip from an online forum…
[Sevenforums.com: Where is the location for the windows logon script?]
If you’re looking for the location of the active logon script in a Windows domain network on a workstation, or just to figure out which logon script is being used for a workstation
TLDR; ‘Get to the point, where is the bleeding thing?!’:
To find the location of a user’s logon script, while logged in as the user, run the command:
net user “%USERNAME%” | find “Logon script”
or for a domain user,
net user “%USERNAME%” /domain | find “Logon script”
The logon scripts themselves can be found on the network in the standard domain network share location:
Additionally, the commands:
net user “%USERNAME%” /domain
Give interesting results for the current user and what Group policy rules are active for the currently logged in user/(machine?) respectively.
Obviously this is only relevant to windows computers in active directory with primary domain controller and group policy ordaining that each machine should run a logon script.
Things i searched for in order to try and find this out:
- find out what logon script a computer is using
- find path of logon script from workstation
- find path of logon script from workstation registry
(I couldn’t find the registry location as it turns out!)
