Users Denied Access When Running Logon Script from Primary Domain Controller

When domain users try to run the logon script in the netlogon share of the primary domain controller (PDC), they may receive an error message stating that access is denied. However, they may be able to access the backup domain controller netlogon shares.

You, as an administrator, are able to run the logon script from all domain controllers.


This behavior can occur when the users' permissions to the netlogon share of the PDC are incorrect.


To resolve this behavior, change the file permissions on the files in the netlogon share on the PDC to grant read access to the Everyone group.
