Hello to all. I have a client who wishes to have their default company policy read (or at least acknowledged) at time of log on.
Something along the lines of a popup that says use of this workstation requires acknowledgement of company policy) to accept the terms and conditions click Yes (workstation logs on) select No (workstation logs off).
I assume this is something that I could do with scripting (although I wouldnt know how). Can someone please point me in the right direction. (One could always argue that if an employee didnt accept company policy that they shouldnt be sitting in front of a workstation anway but.... that doesnt answer my question :-)

It's done with Group Policy.  See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310430 for the how-to.

This is a common situation and is pretty easy to configure.

With Group Policy Objects (GPO's) you want to always create a NEW object for any new policy rather than editing any existing one.
Follow the instructions for a "Domain" in the KB article.

Jeff,
This is exactly what I was looking for. Read, tested and implemented already.
Thanks
