This is how to make a group policy of requiring a screen saver lock a PC
after so many minutes. Which is great for the users who leave
confidential emails on their screens then leave for the day. [our PHB is
the worst at that!] - and our AD is set up as such.

I have ONE system that is normally signed in as administrator (it's
XP-Pro acting as a single app server for a camera recording system). We
need the PHB to use VNC to be able to look at the screen and see the
"Brady Bunch" view of the cameras, but not have administrator access to
the machine.

Any ideas on how to preserve this policy for the users and not have it
on this one machine?

Hi

I'm guessing this setting is in the user configuration part of the GPO?

Also, at what level is this GPO linked? Domain level or at an OU somewhere?

Kind regards

Sorry if I sounded clueless - I'm more accustomed to the other operating
system that starts with "M" :) [NO HOLY WARS!!]

After sleeping on it I realized I could just create a new domain user
account, create a new OU until without the screen saver, and log into
the domain with that account, and run the app itself as administrator
(which it requires)
