Windows 7: adding windows 7 to 2003 domain

In regards to your RSAT query, I haven't tried it myself but I quote from the article in my first post:

"Because you’ll have GP Preferences client side extensions installed already in all of those Windows 7 clients! That means that you can map drives and push out shortcuts and add printers and configure power plans for all these Windows 7 machines from your own Windows 7 client (with RSAT) or with Windows Server 2008 R2."

Which to me suggests you can do it from a Windows 7 client, but as I say I haven't tried this in practice.

Hmm that is strange is regards to dsquery, I assume you're running the command from a domain controller?

Try this to find the correct format of ou= part of the command:

dsquery user domainroot -name * | dsget user -dn

That will display the distinguished name of every user from the domainroot. Find one of the users you intend to make the logon script change and then ignore the first part that says CN=Name of User, you want everything from OU=<organizational unit>,dc=mydomain,dc=tld

Hope I've explained that clearly enough

Please update this thread with how you get on with RSAT, I'll be interested hearing of your experience.

DC, this command you gave cleared everything, thank you

it seemed that the OU "test" is linked to another OU
so i had to put two OUs in the command and also this OU is in a subdomain so i have to put 3 "dc="
it worked

dsquery user "ou=test,ou=OriginalOU,dc=mydomain,dc=local" -name * | dsmod user -loscr longon.bat

regarding the RSAT; from what i read, i understood it is similar to "Administrative tool pack" for 2003 but the RSAT is to enable windows7 clients to manage server 2008 roles but we cannot manage roles that don't exist (no server 2008 in our domain)
so really no point to install
