How to assign users a desktop background containing client and user information unique to each session


  • Hi all,

    Not sure where this topic belongs so I'll just go here for the moment.

    I'm a rather green systems administrator and the system I've just started administrating is a mess. The first thing I want setup is something I saw at a local university. The logon screen and the desktop background gave the user information about the machine they were using, such as IP/mac address and who they were logged in as. The purpose for this being if they had issues with a particular machine, they could call IT and quote the IP/mac address for easy assistance.

    Any ideas on how to set this up? Would you use GP to set the desktop background then have some 3rd party software to automatically create an image with the users information?

    Also I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2.
