Is there a line I can add to my login scripts or something with GPO to prevent the "Manage Your Server" screen from showing up when I log in to a Windows 2003 Server?

manage your server screen

You can do this via a GPO


  • I like that the link includes the 20+ admin users that will also see the screen. It's not just about number of servers but number of admin users as well. Commented Jun 22, 2009 at 17:27

    Because links are ephemeral... Start>Run: type in gpedit.msc (that will launch a Group Policy Object Editor console). Then go to:Computer configuration - Administrative templates - System - Do not display Manage Your Server page at logon Commented Jun 22, 2009 at 18:19

Why not click the little check box that reads

Don't display this page at logon

Or do you just have so many servers to do that to it's beyond reasonable.

  • +1 we usually do this to all servers. Maybe the little checkbox isnt as obvious as it should be. I am sure its probably as simple as changing a 1 to a 0 in the registry somewhere.

Quite late but might be handy so check here :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Setup\Welcome
