Why does my network login script get blocked after I modify/edit it?

Version

All.

 

Issue

Previously approved network logon script is getting blocked after it’s modified.

 

Symptoms

Receiving a block notification for a file that is previously approved after it’s modified.

  • Create a trusted directory or trusted path rule for your netlogon shared folder. Ensure that there’s proper security on that folder to prevent unauthorized user from creating or moving or editing its content.
