Hello, I'm trying to set a GPO to disable the screensaver for all user on specific computer. My AD is configured liked that: Root + - Computers (OU) + - - GPO_Computer - Windows + + - Users (OU) + - - GPO_Users - Windows All my users reside into the users OU, same for computers with the computers OU. Inside my "GPO_Users - Windows", I got these settings: User configuration + Administrative templates + - Control panel \ Personalisation Strategy Activate Screensaver - Active Timeout: 610 sec Force specific screensaver: scrsave.scr rRotect screemsaver with password: Active (the name of the strategy policies might not be accurate, I translate them from my own language). Now, this enable the screensaver "scrnsave.scr" (blank) for everyone in the OU "users" after 610 sec. This work. I want to have an exception on specific computer. Right now, the way we do this is another GPO which disabled the screensaver on specific users. Thus, the screensaver is disable on any computer they go, not what we want. So I tried creating a new computer gpo. Root + - Computers (OU) + - - GPO_Computer - Windows + - - GPO_Computer - Disable Screen saver + + - Users (OU) + - - GPO_Users - Windows I put "GPO_Computer - Disable Screen saver" in first priority. I put a security filtering on an AD Group. The AD Group contain the computer I want to have the screensaver disabled. I also added "Authenticated users" for read only. In the GPO, I set this: Computer Configuration + Administrative templates + - System \ Group Policy Strategy Configure loopback processing: Merge User configuration + Administrative templates + - Control panel \ Personalisation Strategy Activate Screensaver - Disable Timeout: 0 sec Force specific screensaver: "" (empty) Protect screemsaver with password: Disable Now, when I log onto the computer and check Windows configuration, I see the screensaver still set for blank after 610 sec with password. When I run a gpresult, I see the loopback set to merge from "GPO_Computer - Disable screensaver", but the screensaver policy is winned by the gpo "GPO_Users - Windows". Aren't the computer suppose to win it over? What am I missing? Thank you
Hello, The situation is following: I should deploy corporate screensaver via SCCM 2012. Screensaver is into msi package with registry key. When I try to install locally via msiexec, all fine: screensaver install in C:\Windows, and set to default by user. I follow up by this article. After all actions, screensaver has been installed on client, but not set default by user. Actually no changes in registry. Could you suggest me, what it I am doing wrong?
