Because if you ever lose your network connection for whatever reason
your wallpaper will go blank. Copying it to the local system is an extra
step, but it's simple and gives you  much more consistent results. J

Why not just locate the wallpaper on a network share and point to it via
the GPO Jamie indicates below?

Well for starters, I would use a computer startup script to copy the
file to the system root folder. It will run under the NT
AUTHORITY\SYSTEM context and should have all the rights you need. Or, if
you have the Group Policy Preference (GPP) extensions deployed, you can
also them to do simple file copies like this.

 

For configuring the actual wallpaper though, you should use the native
Group Policy settings so the wallpaper can easily be "undone" my simply
removing the GPO . You'll need to configure the following policy
settings:

 

User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Desktop/Active
Desktop/Enable Active Desktop = "Enabled"

User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Desktop/Active
Desktop/Active Desktop Wallpaper = "Local/UNC Path to Wallpaper"

 

Keep in mind that once you configure it this way, the user will not be
able to change it.
