Is there a reason for you hijakking this thread? You should have started a new one and referred back to this.

Anyway, have you had a look at - Windows XP Professional Fast Logon Optimization? Also, there are a number FAQ topics that may help you as well while you are perusing that Forum.

See http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=1217

How exactly are you calling the scripts in the GPO?

eventid was my first port of call! The kix script is being called from a bat file which is run from a GPO. As I said it only sporadically effects XP boxes w2k boxes work fine, grrrrrrrrrrr

Not really!

See our fine FAQ Forum under Use of %0\..\ to launch KiX

Ok I have amended the script to get rid of the %0 and I have also turned off the Run logon scripts synchronously GPO setting, still getting the problem

Does it happen with batch files, too? Are the login scripts replicated correctly among the DCS? It sounds to me like a non-KiXtart problem but a problem with your AD or network.

Ok the bat file fires upo just fine as does the kix script, it is a sporadic problem that happens maybe 1 out of 4 or 5 logons, making it a pain to troubleshoot! The scripts are replicating fine we don't have any replication issues, and the problem ONLY affects WinXP workstations, we have over 230 w2k workstations that work just fine. I'm going to move the offending PC's to an OU where no scripts run and see what happens

Cheers

I run AD on 2K and have a GPO based logon script that runs every time on my XP/SP1. The error you report is a GPO issue, not a KiX issue. That, of course is of no comfort to you as you simply want to resolve the issue.

Intermittent problems are a bitch to solve, but the place to start is to run network sniffer traces.

Yeah I think you're probably right. I was just having a peak on here and found someone else with the same problem, there are a couple others I've found on Google with the same problems, grrrrrrrrrrr

I still think kent was right in the beginning...
would have been lot better to start a new thread and just point to this one.
and yes, I'm not sure these are the same problems.
nor I think the problem solving has been done in the same way.
