    Question

  • Hi

    I applied gpo "apply the default user logon picture to all users"

     Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\User Accounts\Apply the default user logon picture to all users

  • Hi S.Vijay Kumar,

    Based on my understanding, the GPO which configured the Apply the default user logon picture to all users would not apply successfully. What’s more, you have customized the default user logon picture %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\user.bmp. Right?

     Firstly, please check if the scope of this GPO and the setting of Filtering are correct.

    Secondly, please follow the steps below to check if the GPO is applied to these Windows XP clients:

    1. Click Start, type rsop.msc in the search box to access Resultant set of policy.
    2. Check if the GPO is applied to these clients and the setting of the GPO is correct.

    In addition, it would be helpful for future troubleshooting if you could help to collect the following information:

    1. Did the GPO fail to apply for all the computers or only some computers?
    2. Can you set the user.bmp as the user logon picture manually?

  • also if I remember rightly this policy only applies for new users - not already existing ones - but might be wrong here.

  • Is it safe to assume you are pushing the updated custom logo out to each client machine? You may need to push the file using GP preferences > files option. Also, set permissions on the file so that all users have proper access to the file.
