Windows Logon Processing

Available for: Windows clients.

Windows logon processing can display messages regarding password expiration, run logon scripts, or perform Active Directory group policy updates. These actions are executed after a successful corporate network detection test.

  • Password expiration notice: if an enterprise uses expiring passwords, users will typically be reminded about password expiration dates when they log in to the corporate LAN. However, users who only use Open Mobile to connect to corporate resources will not receive such reminders. As a result, their passwords may expire, which will prevent them from signing in. Logon processing enables the IT administrator to send a reminder message to Open Mobile users as well, to prevent password expiration.
  • Login scripts: You can configure a script to run at logon, and specify the connection types that it will run on.
  • AD group policy updates: If selected, the user’s system will run gpupdate.exe and update the user’s local active directory policies.

To specify advanced features:

  1. Password expiration notice: Select Password expiration notice to send password expiration messages to all users. Then, specify a title for the warning message window, the text of the warning message, and the number of days before expiration that the message will be displayed. Note: in the text of the expiration warning message, you can use “{0}” as a variable to indicate the number of days until expiration. For example, if you set number of days until expiration as 4, then you could set the message to be “Your password expires in {0} days.” This would be displayed as “Your password expires in 4 days.”
  2. Login scripts: Select Login scripts to run a logon script when the user logs on to Windows. Then select the script to run, either the default logon script or a custom logon script already included on the user’s system. Finally, select the connection types you wish the script to run on.
  3. AD group policy updates: To run gpupdate.exe upon connection, select AD group policy updates to enable Active Directory group policy updates, and then select the connection types you wish the updates to run on.
  4. Under Settings for the above selected actions, select the run context for all of the advanced features. Each of the advanced features will run at the same specified settings.
