Interactive logon text spontaneously changed...
Posted on 2004-03-27
Alright, this is a puzzler for me. I was working on some new software restriction policies (in group policies) when I logged off and logged back on to test the new settings. Suddenly, after one such logon, I noticed that the Acceptable Use Policy (which I displayed in the Interactive logon text in group policy), was cut off at about one-third of the original length of the text...effectively cutting off 2/3 of my policy statement. I went in to retype the policy, clicked apply, then when I re-view the policy, it reverts back to the text at 1/3 of the text I entered, as though there were a character limit.
This policy has been working fine for over a year...I recently added 2003 to the network, but that was over a month ago and everything worked fine up until now. The only changes I made in the past two days was the implementation of a software restrcition policy (which I removed to try and troubleshoot this) and I also added the Group Policy Management Console snap-in to my 2003 server. I also removed that, in an effort to troubleshoot this error to no avail. It displays the whole text box, as if I typed in something massive, but will not exceed displaying a certain amount of characters anymore.
What is going on???
(P.S. This is not critical, but I am attaching 500 points because I have a feeling this is a tough one).
