Hi guys, we have 5 Active Directory 2003 domains.
What Id like to do is to give all clients (XP and Windows 7) a screen saver, EXCEPT:

1.Users of a group called domainA\testing
2.All Users in a domain called domainB
If you nice people could guide me on what group policy and which setting to use, that would be great.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I think you will need to setup this setting in each domain in an existing GPO or with new GPOs.

Here is the setting :

The exclusions can be based via security filtering.

Thanks RickSheikh,

This looks like local gp and not AD group policy. I want to set it at the domain level, so I will see if there is a corresponding setting in each domain's domain policy.

Local Computer Policy\User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Display.

Screen saver executable name

Thanks for this.

There is. The link was just an example, under GPO it is under the same location i.e User Configuration.
