Type Mismatch 'Join' in Logon Script

Type Mismatch 'Join' in Logon Script

Type Mismatch 'Join' in Logon Script


I'm using a simple Logon VBscript to map network drives and install printer based on domain security groups.  It executes pefectly fine while logging a domain admin in, but for a normal user, I get Type Mismatch 'Join' on line 17, char 1.  Here's the code...


Dim net
Dim strGroups
Const ACCOUNTING_GROUP      = "cn=accounting"
Const BACKUP_GROUP          = "cn=backup"
Const OASIS_GROUP         = "cn=oasis"
Const SCHEDULE_GROUP        = "cn=schedule"
Const HARBORS_GROUP         = "cn=harbors"
Const PSP_GROUP            = "cn=psp"
Const ADMINISTRATORS_GROUP    = "cn=administrators"
Const HOSP_GROUP        = "cn=hosp"

Set wshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
'disabled mapping for roaming profiles
'wshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "H:", "\\server\Users$\" & wshNetwork.UserName

Set ADSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
Set CurrentUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & ADSysInfo.UserName)
strGroups = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf))

This sounds more like a domain security policy issue than a scripting issue, but thought I'd give it a shot...


RE: Type Mismatch 'Join' in Logon Script

BTW, Line 17 is


strGroups = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf))

...seems pretty obvious, but thought I'd point directly to the problem.

RE: Type Mismatch 'Join' in Logon Script

And this ?
If IsArray(CurrentUser.MemberOf) Then
  strGroups = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf))
  strGroups = LCase(CurrentUser.MemberOf)
End If

Hope This Helps, PH.
