GPO for Wallpaper on Windows 2000 Server
Posted on 2009-04-06
I have a client that has a Windows 2000 server that has all users connect to it through terminal services.
I am trying to use GPO to make it so that there is a specific wallpaper that everyone uses. This is wallpaper that has writing on it that tells the user that they are connecting for business purposes and that there is no internet access on this connection especially for personal use.
Anyway, under the GPO the only way I can see to force a certain wallpaper (and yes it is a .bmp file) is to enable Active Desktop. As soon as I do that then the next time the user connects through terminal services (or RDP) two internet explorer pages come up.
It would be sending the wrong message to have a wallpaper that states no internet access then two web pages come up on startup.
How else can I do this without enabling Active Desktop?
