Microsoft introduced an Interactive logon message for users attempting to log on that displays a warning message before logon may help prevent an attack by warning the attacker about the consequences of their misconduct before it happens.

    • I spent all day troubleshooting that before I realized, that is what was breaking the autopilot process. I had assigned to all autopilot devices instead of All Users.

      • I get an autopilot error even if the profile is deployed to the user signing in and not the device – did autopilot work for you when this policy was assigned to the user?
