    Logon message using group policy not working

    Hello,
    I am trying to implement a reminder ( a kind of popup message for my users, which they can see on logon or before logon) . I have windows 2003 as server and XP as users. I have Active directory installed on server.
    I am trying to edit group policy so when user login in domain or before login, they can see the message.

    So what i have done is,
    On Windows 2003,
    Active Directory for users and computers > Right Click on Domain > Properties > Group Policy > Default Domain Policy > > Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Options. Then Interactive logon: Message text... and Interactive logon: Message title

    Enabled The Message Text and Message title with appropriate text, but problem is
    i dont see these reminder appeared on my xp client instead they are appearing on the local server on logon where i edited the policy, i want these notifications to appear on client.

    I dont want to go on individual PC and add startup script so i thought editing group policy will be something centralized

    Do i need to restart the server or something, i am not sure why its not working .

    Please help

    Hi

    See How to configure Windows Server 2003 to display a message when users log on. Look at the troubleshooting section too.
