If Windows Networking Logon Client Installation or Windows Networking Logon Discovery is enabled, and the "Modify user logon scripts" feature is enabled, Systems Management Server "assumes" the script exporting server is the primary domain controller (PDC). The SMS_NT_LOGON_SERVER_MANAGER writes the SMS logon scripts to repl$\Scripts on the PDC, and then replicates them to the NETLOGON shares on the PDC and BDC's. In environments that use the Windows NT Directory Replicator service, and the PDC is not the script exporting server, the Systems Management Server logon scripts may disappear or be overwritten.
This issue can occur because the Windows NT Directory Replicator service is copying files from a different replication source.
To work around this issue and avoid these conflicts, either disable the Windows NT Directory Replicator Service, or configure it so the script exporting server is the PDC.
