5. Type the script's path into the Script Name field or click "Browse" to look for the script file in the domain controller's Netlogon shared folder.

For instance, type /logo /I if your script includes the parameters /logo (display banner) and /I (interactive mode).

6. The Logon/Logoff Properties dialog box provides a list of all the scripts that are presently assigned to the chosen GPO. When numerous scripts are assigned, they are executed in the sequence you choose. Click a script and then choose "Up" to move it up the list.
