    NT4 Login text message

    Is there a way to create a text message that will be displayed during the Nt4 server login process prior to authentication? I seem to recall a registry value that could be set to display a constant message but its been a while and I can't find this topic online. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! -Scott

    Scott,

    You recall correctly. You need to add the values noted below to the registry if they do not already exist at the following location:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersionWinlogon

    (In Windows 2000 and XP, go to)

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon

    Add a new String value and name it LegalNoticeCaption and another named LegalNoticeText. These become the title of the Window and its contents, respectively.

    HTH,
    -Mark

    Yep - check out this registry tweak at Winguides.

    In brief:
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon]
    Value Name: LogonPrompt
    Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)

    Woops! - pipped to the post again.
    That'll teach me not to check who's already answering the question <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
