Standard desktop background for Windows 7 clients in AD
Posted on 2010-08-18
The school district where I work is deploying several labs running Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on Dell Optiplex 780s. We are on a Windows 2008 domain and want a standard desktop wallpaper for all domain users. I do not administer the network, but the guy who does has a policy in place that works just fine for all the XP clients. The Windows 7 boxes do not get the background picture. This is the case even if the logged in user is in the administrators group. All you get is a black background. When you log off you can briefly see the picture, but that's it. One odd thing to mention is; you can manually pick the picture from "personalities" (or something like that) when you right-click the desktop. As soon as you log off and log back in, all you get is black screen. Any ideas?
