Why use a logon script in Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 domain environment?
Hey all, pretty much my question is as per the subject of this topic. With Group Policy in Server 08R2 and Windows 7, you can map drives, printers etc. without using a logon script. At my old work though, a massive corporation, they did use logon scripts so there must be some benefit.
I'm just after some opinions on why I would use one? What's the benefit?

We use the login scripts to set some env. settings. We also use kix scripts. The login script is instant vs a GPO which may require a reboot to take effect. The login script is also easier for some staff to understand and use vs GPO, it really comes down to a preference of the company policy and IT dept on what tool to use.
