Working with BGINFO GPO

Recommended Posts

We can publish any message any text from a text file through Microsoft BGINFO.EXE.

 

Like you want to publish your password Policy on end user desktop.

 

You need a batchfile and you can put it on logon script.

You have to create one custom templete and that templete will be fetched the information from a text file.

Your PWD policy information should be in that text file. Finally save the configuration from the BGINFO and save it. That extension is .bgi.

Now crete a GPO and put those files into netlogon(bginfo.exe,pwd.txt and test.bgi)

 

 

I have put the batch into the below location
