Set up log on banner in windows 2000 through GP

I have created a OU in my active directory (windows 2000). Through the GP of this OU I configured the log on banner title and message. But when I log on to the computer the banners don't come up. Any ideas? Thanks

Exactly what settings in the GP did you change. Is the computer in the OU you've assigned the GP to?

No, I did not assigned the computer in the OU. I just moved some domain user accounts to the OU. I made the changes in the OU GP under computer configuration - windows settings- local policies-and security options.

There's your problem. The policy changes you want to make affect the computer. However, the policy you applied only affects the user. The logon banner doesn't show as at the point of logon, there's no user policy applied to the machine as there's no user logged on.

Move the computers into that OU (or apply the same GP to the OU containing the computers) and it should work.
