I have a Windows 2k3 domain environment, using an XP PRo system, we have many global policies, one of which provides the logon settings - these include an interactive message to say something along the lines of "Don't log on unless your allowed..."
I am currently working on a project to get several PCs to log onto the network without having to actually log on, so that it is fully automatic - the reason for this is we are developing something where someone can swipe a card to bring up relevant information, however they need a domain account for this.
I have managed to get the computer to automatically log in with the correct credentials through a registry tweak, however I am stuck with the Interactive Logon Message text - set in global policy for all computers in the domain.
Is there anyway to prevent this from being passed to certain PC's whilst retaining other settings within that policy, or is there a way to get it to press the OK after a period of time?
Any help would be great.
