Hi, i need to update the wording on the login window configuation profile that we have deployed to our machines. Before i do, anyone have any experience doing this? I assume its simple and the change should take affect, but wondering if there is anything i should look out for or could really mess things up.

Does that configuration profile change anything else other than the Login Window? 

Are you only changing the wording of the Banner

Is this an older configuration file, has it been in use unchanged for several major OS versions?

The configuration profile only has the login window payload configured, along with the text I want to update, it is just a minor working change, a few characters that I need to change. Within the login window payload, there is various items checked and set. 

 

It is an older configuration profile scoped to a smart group.

Hi @auser the best way to satisfy yourself is clone the original configuration profile and scope it to a test machine that isn't in scope of the other configuration profile.  If the main configuration profile is scoped to all machines, put the test machine in the exclusion tab. 

Now you can play around with the cloned configuration profile and the test machine as much as you want until you are happy with the results

But to directly answer your question - there is a limit on how much text can be displayed and then it is a scroll window which visually isn't great so I try and keep my message short.
