How to technically enforce that a user watches an info announcement at domain logon

Posted on 2010-01-04

We have a requirement to ensure that users of our system watch a flash video at domain logon. Once they have watched it, we need to capture their affirmation of having watched it, record that data so at next login the user is not asked to watch the video again.

Using Windows AD 2003 and XP.

Any ideas or pointers?

Perhaps create a GPO to run an app which controls the video, when the video finishes the user checks something which creats a new directory attribute. On next login, the addition of the new attribute bypasses the video display?

    Accepted Solution


    Group Policy Legal Message with Logon Script that  would auto launch the FlashVideo with a mandatory confirmation or logoff then that info is entered into a database on the server.  

    Seems pretty logical.
