I'm running a Windows 2003 server, Active Directory and Windows XP pro
client workstations. I create an OU (Accounting Users) and I wrote a
simple batch file to map network drives using NET USE.

I created a GPO, attached to the Accounting Users OU and set the user
logon script to the MappedDrives.bat file (which is in the
%sysvol%[...etc] folder.

When the users logon other elements of the GPO seem to be working but
the logon script does not map the drives.

What am I missing here?

The Path is ...\{GUID of GPO}\USER\Scripts?
You only have to set the name of the script, the path
is "predifined".

I have copied the file (script) into the path but still it does not
run as I have no mapped drives under this user account.

I usually put those scripts in the folder that'll pop up automagically when
you click "Show files" button. That might solve your problem.

Yes, this is what I did. I have a folder named "Scripts" that I put
all of my .vbs or .bat files into as I work on them. When I link one
to a GPO I click on the "View Files" button and copy and paste from
scripts to this "View Files" folder for the GPO. But still it doesn't
seem to run.

I did run the RSoP on the GPO and it doesn't even show that there is a
script to be run in the startup but I can manually verify that it is
there.

Did you work with DSACls filter on the GPO?
Replication Problems?
Is the user inside the OU?
Does it work manully as thi user?
