Hi Folks,

Can anyone here please suggest me what is the steps or trick to use BGInfo to display the current IP and Hostname on the desktop using Group Policy ?

I have approximately 60 Terminal Server running as Windows Server 2008 R2 and also some application server running as Windows Server 2012 & 2012 R2 all as VMware Virtual Machine.
