How can I replicate log-on scripts between Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0 domain controllers?
NT 4.0 LAN Manager Replication (LMRepl) uses directory replication to
replicate data from one export machine (%systemroot%\system32\Repl\export) to
the import folders of the other domain controllers (DCs)
(%systemroot%\system32\Repl\import), which then share the data as the Netlogon
share. Win2K File Replication Service (FRS) uses the SYSVOL volume
(%systemroot%\SYSVOL\sysvol), which replicates among DCs automatically. The
Netlogon share points to %systemroot%\SYSVOL\sysvol\<domain name>\SCRIPTS.
The different system approaches are incompatible. Therefore, you must
manually configure a script to periodically copy files from one of the Win2K
Netlogon shares to the NT 4.0 export machine, which can then disseminate the
files to the other NT 4.0 DCs. The Windows 2000 Resource Kit supplies
lbridge.cmd, a template for this script that can use either Xcopy or Robocopy to
perform the file operations.
If you don't configure such a script, your NT 4.0 DCs will have out-of-date
