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
Anyone know how to send a message on a Win 2008 R2 domain to all Win 7 clients?
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*
But why not replace it with something else? (that worked )
I know, I know...
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.
