  • active desktop on 2k

    For anyone who is very bored....

    Have recently recycled some older laptops, and have put 2k pro on them. They are joining our predominatly 2003 domain and work fine except...

    they do not display our corporate desktop. The desktop is configured through a group policy object which enables active desktop and then points to the location of the jpeg on a server. I have just noticed that even before I join them to the domain if i enable active desktop locally I get an error saying that active desktop cannot display certain items due to not having a valid internet connection. Once joined to the domain it does not appear at all.

    This works fine on all our xp clients and the gpo setting states that it will work with 2k, any ideas - we're all scratching our heads on this one!!
