Screen Saver implementation using Group policy

By mvarolii ·
Hi all,

This is my first post. We have about 300 Windows 2K servers in our environment and I need to implement the password enforced screensaver policy. Since all these servers are in a workgroup, I can't deploy a domain policy to implement this. I know how to change the local policy under Admin Templates but it is a lot of work if I need to do this on each server. Any idea if I could somehow export the template and import them into each server? OR any other script that can enforce this?

BTY the registry change to implement and change the screensaver does not work. As soon as the server restarts, the screensaver changes back to NONE even though the registry changes still exist. Not sure why that is.

Please help!!!!!!!!!!

This might help with your screen saver issue..

Customizing the Desktop

You can enable Group Policy settings that control whether users use screen savers and whether they can change screen saver properties. Table 8.8 lists and describes each Group Policy setting.

Other Group Policy settings you enforce can affect screen saver Group Policy settings. For additional information, right-click the Group Policy setting, click Properties , and then click the Explain tab, or refer to the Group Policy Reference on the Windows 2000 Resource Kit companion CD.

The Group Policy settings listed in Table 8.8 are located in the Group Policy snap-in under Local Computer Policy\User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Display.
