No native setting that i know of that will set the display to something (1024x768 for example)

What you may be able to do is use group policy preferences and edit/modify the registry to force a setting...haven't tried that myself to fully test.

Thanks

Mike

Never seen it and the last time I read up on this the prevailing thought was bad idea due to causing issues with the video card.  Actually, a quick EE search found the post I found a while back:

We have 8 different organizational container in 2008 DC and around more than 750 user those are working in different project with different screen resolution.

We do locally on each desktop to user suitable screen resolution and this is daily routine practise.

So that is why I want do it from my Domain controller 2008 on each OU with different screen resolution.

Kind Regards,

Did you read the link?  It tells you what registry key(s) you need to look at.  You are looking at the prospect of a custom .adm file for each type of video card you have.
