Hi,

i configure domain level GPO to replace Lock Screen Background of all desktops and laptops to our company logo.

All domain joined machines are getting these changes and showing our company log as lock screen wallpaper.

but, some windows 8/8.1 machines are not showing our company wallpaper (when i go to PC Setting and it's showing as applied) . instead showing sky-blue color not GPO applied background.

any one please help me to resolve the issue.


Thanks in advance.
Rafi

I can reproduce your problem.
I would go and experiment with different file types and image file locations.
What I did (and what did not work) was use \\server\share\test.jpg
Please try a local path and also try the type .bmp.
