Logon banner

I want to display a logon banner for our network users.
How do I do this ?

I followed the directions at http://www.ciac.org/ciac/bulletins/j-043.shtml
(domain security settings - local settings - security options - interactive logon: message text ...)
But after doing this, the client computers don't display the logon banner when trying to logon to the network.

We have 2 Windows 2003 servers, one is the main "domain controller" and file server, the other one is running Exchange.
I only updated the local security policy (as described in the article) on the main one.
Should I do this also on the other Win 2003 server ?
