The script path should be relative path to \\\SYSVOL\\scripts folder.


setting the path to:
will run the following script when a user logs in:

- Run with root user privileges:
By default, the login script will run as an Active Directory user. If 'Run with root user privileges' is checked, the login script will run with root privileges, allowing a user to do things that they normally don't have permission to do.

You can specify only one file as a login script.

This policy uses Mac OS X's login hook. If you already use login hook for your own purposes then, with Centrify Agent version 4.4 and earlier, your login hook will be replaced and will not run anymore. With Centrify Agent version 4.5 and later, your login hook will be copied to /var/centrifydc/scripts/additional/login and will run before the script specified in this policy.

On Mac OS X 10.6, login script cannot launch GUI applications, for example TextEdit.app. Please use "Enable login items" policy to launch these applications.
