How to get disclaimer message on 2008 SBS domain logon.

Hi all,

Was wondering if anyone had any simple to follow instructions on how to get a mixture of Windows XP, Vista and 7 domain clients to display a company disclaimer message before they logon to the domain.  Something along the lines of "Management reserve the right to monitor all staff activities on the companies computer system and internet. By logging on you agree to these terms" I'm hoping this can be set on the server rather than by a registry tweak on each machine.

Many thanks

    It's a group policy setting.  It should be pretty much the same in SBS 2008 for setting it up:

    Unfortunately Group Policy in 2008 is different to 2003 so the instructions in your message don't work :-(

    Managed to find the answer eventually through Google.  Thanks anyway.

    Is there a reason you're not posting what that answer is?  So both myself and others would know in the future?
