Policy Loopback & Disabling Screensaver settings
Posted on 2007-10-18
We have around 30 Multimedia PCs that are used by a variety of Staff. At present we don't enforce any settings for Screensavers or timeouts. We leave it for staff to decide or use the default on their own pc's.
However for the 30 MM pcs i need to have the screensaver & prompt for password disabled because staff keep using the units and walking away leaving it locked.
The 30 MM pcs are in a group called POLICY Screensaver Overide and also sit in there own OU called MM PC's.
I have tried applying two ways of appliying policys to this OU the 1st turning on
User Group Policy loopback processing mode (replace)
in side this policy i also set the screensaver tab to be hidden /disabled password protect/ disabled screensaver.
this didn't work so i tried those settings in a 2nd policy, leaving the loopback on its own, the 2nd policy was like the 1st apllied at the OU level and only to the POLICY Screensaver override group.
A group policy modeling shows the policies are being applied but i can still see the screen saver tab and make changes.
Many thanks in advance for any help.
