SCCM 2012 Logon Package (always rerun) not working

Hi All,

I've got a question/problem regarding a Logon Package.


I've a problem with a SCCM 2012 (R2) Package that's scheduled with a Logon Assignment Schedule (alway rerun).

My Goal:

What i want to create from SCCM 2012 (R2), is a script/job that will always run when a user logs on .. whatever the result of the script/job will be.  This is working in our SCCM 2007 environment, but it's not giving the same results with SCCM2012 (R2).

To to this with SCCM 2012 (R2), i'm using a package .. because you can't deploy an application with a Logon Assignment. So (for testing) i've created a Package in it's simplest form, that only runs a command to create a directory .. there's no content, so this cannot be an issue. I created the package with the following base configuration:

-- CONFIGURATION ------------------------------------------

All default


Command line: cmd /c md C:\TestDir
Run: Hidden


Program can run: Only when a user is logged on (also tested it with whether or not a user is logged on)
Run mode: Run with administrator rights (also tested it with user's rights)
                 Allow users to interact with this program (also tested it without)

Drive mode: Run with UNC name

When this program is assigned to a computer: Run once for every user who logs on (also tested it with run once for the computer)


I tried the following with a User Collection and a Device Collection:

#Deployment Setting:
Required, Install

Assignment Schedule: Log On
Rerun behaviour: Always rerun program

# User Experience

# Distribution points


Whatever (working) combination i use, the package will only run once for a user. These are my test steps when i change a configuration variable:

- Delete existing deployment
- Create new deployment

- Delete C:\TestDir if exist
- Reboot machine a wait a couple of minutes
- Logon .. at this moment the 'TestDir' directory is not created yet
- initiate all client actions and wait a couple of minutes
- Logoff
- Logon .. at this moment the Package will run and creates the 'TestDir'
- Delete C:\TestDir
- Logoff
- Logon .. No Package Run
- Initiate all client actions and wait a couple of minutes
- Reboot machine a wait a couple of minutes
- Logon .. No Package Run
- And so on ......

As said before ... in our SCCM 2007 environment our Logon Package is working well!

So my question is:
Is it possible with SCCM 2012 (R2) to create a Logon Package, that will always run when (whatever) user logs on. So it's actually a logon script we are using. The reason we are not using this logonscript from a GPO or a Scheduled Task is that we need administrative credentials and have user interaction with a message box(and of course because it works in SCCM2007 ;-)

With kind regards,

is there any valuable information in execmgr.log?

What exactly you want to achieve? it doesn't make sense just create and delete folders.
