Dear IT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi


    Our hospital used a AD enviroment for the desktops.

    I like to use the windows steady because I want the user to log off the computer after 45inutes autonatically


    But Now I only can build the local user for using this function. How can I let our domain user use the function as well?


    Please let me know in detail.


    Thanks a lot

  • Hi Victor,


    As domain users will not be detected by SteadyState, unfortunately, we cannot configure this from SteadyState interface.


    However, we can achieve this feature with the group policy method from the server side:


    As you may know, Windows SteadyState includes a Group Policy template called SCTSettings.adm in the ADM folder commonly located in C:\Program Files\Windows SteadyState. This template reproduces most of the settings included in Windows SteadyState Feature Restrictions tab of the User Settings dialog box, and can be used to deploy restrictions to users. For detailed information about its usage, you can refer to the SteadyState Handbook:


    Windows SteadyState Handbook


    The related policy is: All Windows SteadyState Restrictions\General settings\"Force logoff after specified number of minutes (Windows SteadyState must be installed)"


    FYI, you can use Group Policy Loopback to apply it only to the shared computers.


    Loopback Processing of Group Policy


    Best Regards,
