Hi,

I created a legal disclaimer on my workstation using regedit.  Is there an easy way to push this out to all the workstations?

Thanks!

If you have AD you can do it with GPO

Create a GPO and then edit the computer configuration:
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options

Set the same options you set locally to the two values:

Interactive Logon: Message Text for users attempting to logon
Interactive Logon: Message Title for users attempting to logon

Make a .reg file and run it on each machine, or set in group policy for the domain if you have an active directory domain.

For the .reg file, copy and paste this into a notepad document, save and change the extension to .reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"LegalNoticeCaption"="Enter the title of the popup box here, i.e. Legal Warning"
"LegalNoticeText"="Enter your message here"


Save the file and run it on each workstation.


Alternatively, set it as a logon script on your server (if you have one) or do it via group policy, again on your server.

Here's how to do the logon script: http://www.amset.info/loginscripts/registry.asp
Or, in group policy, star tthe Group Policy editor and do the following, either to an existing object or make a new one:

Expand the Computer Configuration node, the Windows Settings node, the Security Settings node, and the Local Policies node.
6. Click the Security Options node.
7. In the right pane in the console, double-click the Message title for users who attempt to log on entry.
8. Select the Define this policy setting check box. Type the text that you want to appear on the title bar of the Authorized Page Warning dialog box, and then click OK.
9. Double-click the Message text for users who attempt to log on entry.
10. Select the Define this policy setting check box. Type the text that you want to appear in the body of the Authorized Page Warning dialog box, and then click OK.
11. Close the Group Policy window, the OU Properties dialog box, and the Active Directory Users and Computers console.
12. Start a command prompt, type secedit /refreshpolicy MACHINE_POLICY, and then press ENTER.
13. Restart a computer in the organizational unit. The Authorized Page Warning dialog box appears after you press CTRL+ALT+DELETE.

Hope this helps

Sorry, forgot to mention, apply that GPO to the OU that contains the computers

Are you on a domain, using GPO?

Computer Config>Windows Settings>Security Settigns>Local Policies>Security Options

Look for......Interactive Login:Message text for users attempting to login and the one below it, Interactive Login:Message title for users attempting to login ....
