If it's blocked by domain policy, you contact the domain administrator to change it.

Moreover, the situation is far from clear, and your post is confusing. What's the exact relation between domain, private network, office, AD, AD account, remotely? What restrictions are set in what way? What's your role in the company?

Also the reason for an urgent change of wall paper and screen saver settings isn't clear.

Dear Sir,

Due to covid 19 all our staff is working from home and when they are in the office that time machine is in domain and it's sync with domain
Now few days back one award function is happened online and now they want to apply that values on every one's laptop as a wallpaper and screen saver.
Now they all are at home and they don't have any connectivity to office network and wallpaper and screen saver change restrictions policy already applied on users laptop now they are not ready to come office hence management request to do this remotely.. and when we are trying to make change from users AD account login the applied domain policy not allow me to make change..
So in that case how I can do this??
Even we don't have any connectivity from outside network like... VPN
They had gievn me deadline for this activity that's why I said this is urgent..
I hope this will clear..
I just need to stop applied resticted policy for wallpaper and screen saver..

Then ask the management to have everybody come to the office before the end of their deadline. Make a schedule so that every employee comes in his own time slot (which should be long enough for you to fix it).

Be sure there is coffee and tea and a free mouth cap for them, that they are paid for the hours spent and travel expenses and there is enough alcohol or whatever you use to clean every laptop thoroughly before handling it.

I wonder how urgent this stays if you explain this is the only solution.

Then suggest you hire an external consultant to help you since you don't know how to do it.

There is nothing wrong with asking for outside help if there's something local staff can't do. Most companies are happy with having their own staff for the more or less routine business and hire someone for the very specialised stuff in very special cases like this.

I think you don't know anything you just doing time pass while replaying.
even you don't know the answer.
I should understand this after your first revert.

thanks please don't revert.

Your being an obstinate, uninformed,

by Phayte In reply to Domain

uneducated, and obtuse moron! Why attack someone attempting to help you?
Hey, if you don't have access to the domain controller, you CANNOT change screensaver and wallpaper settings...period! If any "admin" setup the domain server where these types of settings could be done remotely, then it would be simple to hack the entire domain and take CnC of it. Go read and learn something about security before you make an even bigger fool of yourself.
