Setting up a logon banner

I want to set up a logon banner. Right now, for about a month, I only want this banner on the server. After the month is up I want to set up a group policy to make it applicable for all domain users. I can't find information on setting up a logon banner for the local server only. How do I accomplish this? Is it possible/easy to also add VPN connections to the 30 day trial period?

I am using SBS 2003 R2

I'll tackle the first part of your question:

you can configure as below

The banner can be set up by creating a GPO at domain level and setting the security filtering to only affect the server in question.

Computer Configuration > Windows settings > security settings > Local Poilcies > Securuty options

then change th eoption called Interactive Logon: message text for users attempting to logon.

you can put your mesage in there and it will only apply to the computer accounts put into the security filtering.

see how that goes

yeah posted it like a second after yours!

you posted a local policy though, i would recommned using a Group policy as this is what srecommended by microsoft.

also im pretty sure local policies for DC's are removed, and youre supposed to use  GPO's.

 local or group the path is the same, which was my point and since I'm home local policy was more readily available for a screen shot. :-)
