    Custom logon screen with group policy

    lwells

      We are using group policy in Windows 2008 r2 to set a warning at logon with a custom background but when we push to a computer with ePO 5.1.1, VirusScan and drive encryption the message gets pushed but the image does not. Again it works on machines that we have not yet pushed the McAfee Agent and encrypted. Any one have a setting correction to allow this. Thank you.

      First, Create a jpg file you want as logon screen background which should be less than 256kb, name it as backgroundDefault.jpg and place it inside a server share, ex. \\servername\share\backgroundDefault.jpg

      In the Group Policy Management Console, edit the GPO to change following settings.

      Computer Configuration => Preferences => Windows Settings => Files => New File

      set the parameters as following image.
