I am using Bat files for users to login and get their mappings on a Windows Server 2003 machine. Is there some way that I can keep the user desktops from displaying until the login script is completed?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You are probably asking this because the script does not load their mappings when they login. Thats because the user is logging in while the computer is finishing up the network connections in the background, and when the script runs, it will not have a connection to the network, and therefore, will not map the drives.

You can set a group policy to have the computer wait for the network connections to finish before logging the users in. Enable the following group policy: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\Always Wait for the network at computer startup and logon.
