Objective : Planning and Implementing Group Policy
SubObjective : Configure the User Environment by Using Group Policy
Single Answer Multiple Choice

 

You are the network administrator for your company. The company’s logical network design consists of a single Active Directory domain. All network servers run Windows Server 2003, and all network clients run Windows XP Professional.

 

You are planning on performing some network maintenance that will result in the network being unavailable to dial-in users next weekend. You want to use group policy to deploy the following logon banner to provide advance notice of the event to network users:

 

The network will be unavailable for local or remote access this weekend. Please download any files on Friday that you will require access to over the weekend. The network will be available 8 A.M. Monday.

 

You create a new Group Policy object (GPO) that will be linked at the domain level to deploy the logon banner. You must configure the appropriate policy setting that will deploy the logon banner using the least amount of administrative effort.

 

What should you do?

 

A. Enable the Scripts (Startup/Shutdown) policy and create a script that displays the desired message text.
B. Enable the Interactive logon: Message text for users attempting to log on policy and define the desired message text.
C. Enable the Interactive logon: Message title for users attempting to log on policy and define the desired message text.
D. Enable the Domain controller: Allow server operators to schedule tasks policy, create a batch file that displays the desired message text, and use Schtasks to run the new batch file.

 

Answer:
B. Enable the Interactive logon: Message text for users attempting to log on policy and define the desired message text.

 

Tutorial:
You should enable the Interactive logon: Message text for users attempting to log on policy and define the desired message text. This setting will display the desired logon text at logon to users who receive the policy settings. This setting is located in the Computer Configurations – Windows Settings – Local Policies – Security Options policy node.

 

You should not enable the Scripts (Startup/Shutdown) policy and create a script that displays the desired message text. This setting executes scripts when the computer receiving the policy settings is restarted. The scenario requires the message to be displayed when users log on to the network.

 

You should not enable the Interactive logon: Message title for users attempting to log on policy and define the desired message text. This setting defines the header for the dialog box that is displayed at logon when the policy is set. This policy restricts the amount of text that can be displayed in the header.

 

You should not enable the Domain controller: Allow server operators to schedule tasks policy, create a batch file that displays the desired message text, and use Schtasks to run the new batch file. This will not provide the message when users log on and would require excessive administrative effort.
