Within Group Policy Management, I have my domain with an attached GPO (Default Domain Policy). The following setting within this policy has been edited.
dows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Options
Interactive Logon: Message text for users attempting to log on
I wanted to make a group of servers that didn't have this message pop up on log in, so I created an OU and a linked GPO that had that setting turned off.
The problem I'm experiencing is that the servers that are in that OU with the new linked GPO are still getting the message text before the ctrl alt delete option. I brought up the local security policy on one of the servers that are in the OU, and in the setting for this option, it reports to me the default domain policy, not the new policy that is supposedly assigned to the new OU.
Here are the steps I've already tried.
verified that the new policy was linked to the new OU within the domain tree structure to ensure last setting used
verified that override is not on for the default domain policy(called enforced in win2008 server)
ran gpupdate /force from the dc that I used group policy management on
Some information about my setup:
Mixture of win2k3 and win2k8 DCs
In the default domain policy under Interactive Logon, both message text and message title are enabled and filled in, also, in the new OU which I called "No Message Screen" both of these options are set to not configured
