Login Scripts - Best Practices

I've been very busy the last couple of weeks. It's past time to post on my blog. This week I found a great Cool Solutions article by David Lange on Login Scripts.

Login scripts should be simple to manage. They should be easily viewed and intuitive to any IT staffer with a little programming background. In fact, if you treat them like code and create modular script that can be referenced in subordinate containers, you'll find you can easily manage your scripts and make changes to accommodate user needs much more efficiently.

You should get three valuable tips from reading this article:

  1. Where to find instructions on building your scripts.
  2. How to modularize your login script for easy management and execution.
  3. How to help eDirectory deliver your modular scripts without slowing down the login process.
Check out the Novell Login Scripts Guide (PDF Format) for NetWare and Linux.
