JSI Tip 1391. WinNT Workstation logon script does not work, loops, and may hang the server.

When you logon to the domain from your WinNT Workstation, the logon script doesn't work, loops, and may hang the server.

If you have a net.bat or net.cmd file in the Netlogon share, it is executed every time you invoke a net command in the logon script. Since the current folder is checked first, your net.bat (or net.cmd) is run instead of %SystemRoot%\System32\Net.exe.

Rename your net.bat or net.cmd.
