Login script error

Have some machines from time to time where the login script does not
process properly.

Windows 7 64bit, running client 2sp2 (ir3). Login script processes
user's folder mapping to SYS vol instead of DATA & user's folder. If
something gets added to user's personal script (pause, chg drive
mapping, etc) the script works properly.

Script processes fine on any other computer, just not the one she uses.

I've removed & reinstalled the client to no avail.

Suggestions?

Sounds like a potential timing issue. What kind of script error? Always at the same place? Happens to this one machine only? ie if the user logs in elsewhere (different machine), does the (same) error occur? How about if someone else logs in at that one (bad) machine? And, have you tried IR4?

Have you tried the current client, IR4a? It does resolve some mapping issues, although not exactly like this one AFAIK.

So my response to peterkuo's comment is...

It seems to incorrectly map 1 drive mapping, only on this machine.
Have not tried logging in as anyone else on it, but if this user logs
in anywhere else the mapping works correctly.

For now I just repeated the 'failing' mapping in her user script.

Have not tried ir4, this is the only machine that's doing this
weirdness. It's been running ir3 for quite a while and this just
cropped up randomly.

There is a "WAIT" program in CoolSolutions that you can try putting in the login script for this user - perhaps 2s worth and see if that helps. Generally such issues are timing related - sometimes caused by a specific CPU/OS/SP combo and are very hard to track down or really resolve, except for workarounds like you have done.

What's weird is this user has been on our system for years, login
script has processed fine for years, just up and weirded out that day.

Any SP or hotfixes got applied that day, do you recall? Sometimes changing the order to program start up within Windows does strange things too.

None that I can remember, the script just up and borked itself.

Maybe you just need to move the workstation back by 1mm? <g> Eons ago I had a workstation hard drive "failing" for no reason and couldn't for the life of me find why it works perfectly for me on my bench but not at the user's desk. After going back and forth for about a week, I walked into his office and found that he put the workstation on its end (instead of flat) due to space; I reformatted the drive with the machine on its end and not a problem since ... not saying your issue is anywhere related but to just point out sometimes it may be "environmental."
