Lock Screen Group Policy - Error code 0X80070002 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm trying to update the workstation policy (2008R2) to show a new Lock Screen for our users.

    I have two policies:

    -Windows 7 Workstation Policy

    -Windows 8.1 Workstation Policy

    It was no problem for our Windows 7 machines.

    Windows 8.1 however wouldn't change.

    The picture downloads successfully to the client directory I specified in the policy, resolution and size are ok.

    I've tried deleting the sysdata folder on test machines (This left me with a blue lock screen, but still better than what they chose ;)

    I've tried default and unique filenames, and different folder locations under 'Force A Specific Lock Screen'

    I've disabled/enabled 'Force a Specific Lock Screen'

    I came across this warning on the client test machine:

    The computer 'backgroundDefault.jpg' preference item in the 'Win8.1 Policy}' Group Policy Object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070002 The system cannot find the file specified.' This error was suppressed

  • Hi ,

    Can you please post the gpresult report here? And also ensure there is no policy processing failure in the problematic machines. That you can verify by seeing the gpsvc logs.
