Hello Experts!

This should be a quick request. I'm looking to configure a system message for users logging in on a certain day. For example, I want users logging in on Friday to see the message "System will be down for routine maintenance on Saturday, 12:00am."

I assume this is controlled by a Group Policy, and I've played around with interactive messages under the computer config, but could not get them working. Any ideas?

Thank you!

Sorry for my lack of response! The legal notice policy is not quite what I was looking for, as it doesn't have enough flexibility. I've decided the best way may be a powershell script. Does anyone have experience with this? Here's what I've used for my command, but cannot get it to apply correctly in Group Policy.

To start, I created a script with this in the body:

----
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms")

[System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox]::Show("DFS Failure - Data has been deleted." , "WARNING")
----

Thank you!
