    Question NET SEND vs. MSG vs. DOMAIN MESSAGES

    Hi folks,

    I've spotted that NET SEND no longer works with a Win 2008 R2 domain (with Win 7 clients).

    Reading around the topic MSG is purportedly meant to replace it, but I've had no luck sending a message to a domain (the message only appears on the server).

    When I send (with /V switched on) I get the following:

    C:\Users\administrator.ADMIN>msg * /v Test. Please Ignore
    Sending message to session Console, display time 60
    Async message sent to session Console
    Sending message to session RDP-Tcp#0, display time 60
    Async message sent to session RDP-Tcp#0

    C:\Users\administrator.ADMIN>

    Anyone know how to send a message on a Win 2008 R2 domain to all Win 7 clients?

    TIA

    Thanks. I did try this already, but it was linked elsewhere and didn't include the GPO edit.

    The script doesn't seem to be all that usable sadly. It seems to take a long time to process.

    How annoying that MS removed it! *shakes fist*

    They removed if for security reasons, it was comped back in 98 and finally disabled in SP2 of XP.

    We use Email, or our In house Messenger installed on all machines - or if worst come to the worst go and see the people sat at the machines. Unfortunately I've not found a way to do this, Since our messenger system signs in at logon we just use that.

    We have our own Jabber server (open-fire) and we have the spark chat client re-branded to match our organization. It's all synced with AD.
