  2. Hi Antonio,

    Thanks for using the newsgroup.

    According to your description, it seems that you want to apply some group
    policy to the OU you created on the SBS 2003 to force the user to the same
    wallpaper.

    Before we go any further, could you tell us the OS running on client is
    windows 2000 or windows XP, and please also tell us about the file you mean
    in the document setting. So that we can help you clarify issue more clear:

    Can I assume that your goal is to Deploy Custom Desktop VIA Group policy to
    that OU in a domain File used for Desktop is stored locally on the client
    machineYou can configure the following setting in group policy

    The Domain Policy you want to apply to the OU:

    User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Desktop->Active
    Desktop->Active Desktop Wallpaper

    Wallpaper Name: enter into a file for the wallpaper on the SBS server, also
    make sure that this folder need to put in a network shared folder that all
    the users in that OU can access, I suggest you put a UNC name here.

    Please also check to make sure the enable active desktop policy is enabled.
    User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Desktop->Active Desktop

    If the problem still exist, please run the RSOP and paste the results to
    newsgroup, you can follow the steps below to run the rsop:

    A. Click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and
    then double-click Active Directory Users and Computers.
    B. In the console tree, expand Active Directory Users and Computers, expand
    Domain, expand Organizational unit, and then expand child organizational
    unit.
    C. Right-click the user on which you want to run RSoP, point to All Tasks,
    and then click Resultant Set of Policy (Planning).
    Then paste the results to the newsgroup.

    More info:

    Gpedit.msc

    Hope the above information can be helpful. If you have any further issue,
    please let me know. I am here waiting for your updates.

  5. Hi,

    Thanks for updates and effort in this issue.

    I am sorry due to the newsgroup limitation we can not attach the files on
    it, so could you write down the RSOP results to the newsgroup. Thanks for
    your efforts.

    In addition, does it occur to all the client computers or some client
    computers? If you apply the policy to one of the client does the issue
    exist or not?

    I am here waiting for your updates. Your satisfaction is our top goal.

    Best regards,
