editing control.ini file on a LAN

By longennamer ·
I want to be able to change the screen saver settings section in the control.ini file on all workstations on my LAN. I would prefer not to have to manually change each and every machine. And each machine has a different control.ini file, so I needto be able to just modify the screensaver section. I would like to be able to change all machines at once. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

If your LAN is Windows NT 4.0 based, you can extend system policies by incorporating your own .adm files.

I don't think this can be accomplished at the client level. You'd have to edit control.ini files, and if they are variable, then they'd have to be edited separately.

Purchase Symatec's "Norton Ghost", it is worth the money when wanting to update multiple machines with no running..

If you have a Netware network, this would be a piece of cake with Zenworks
