Dear experts,

I would like to know where can i find the script or command that allows a message to pop up right after you press Ctrl+Alt... Before each user logins to our domain with his or her username and password, they will get to see a dialog box that shows "Welcome to the Domain". It was my former colleague who configured this and I am not sure where he configured from. Please advise.

Thank you.

the message is in the registry under
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"LegalNoticeCaption"=
"LegalNoticeText"=

Or possibly under
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"LegalNoticeCaption"=
"LegalNoticeText"=

Just another note it could be in group policy for the domain under Computer Configuration\ Local Policies\ Security Options\ Interactive Logon:Message text for users attempting to log on, and Interactive Logon:Message title for users attempting to log on

Hi kkpehlers,

thank you for your response, i found the messages in the registry and in the group policy too and have edited the messages. But i don't see the change when i restart my workstation. Does that mean that it will only take effect if i restart the server?

nope it just means that it probably hasn't replicated the changes yet
