Stand-alone server

If you have a stand-alone server, fire up regedit and go the following registry entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\winlogon\

There you have two String values:


Edit the LegalNoticeCaption and put a title text like “Warning”.

Edit the LegalNoticeText and put a message like “I have the owner ship!” and save it, and close the Windows® Registry.

== Domain Policy ==

If the server is part of a domain, you need to set a Group Policy on the Domain Controller:

1. Login to the domain controller machine with the administrator account.

2. Click on Administrative Tools, Click on Group Policy Management.

3. Expand Forest -> Domains -> Right click on Default Domain Policy and choose Edit

4. Expand Computer Configurations -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options

5. Edit the Interactive Logon : Message text for users attempting to log on parameter

6. Edit the Interactive Logon : Message title for users attempting to log on parameter

7. Run gpupdate on any clients you want to update immediately.
