Windows Hello for Business

Occasional Contributor

Hello,

 

I was trying to enable the feature for our domain since we recently purchased laptops with fingerprint reader.

 

I found  the template but when enabling the windows hello for business it does not seem to do anything on our laptops. 

 

I still see it disabled. 

 

Is there anything I'm missing on the GPO?

 

Thanks!

Hi @seyah96,

 

Could you create a registry record with Group Policy and apply the policy to the OU where the computers are?

 

Create New Policy and edit

 

Computer Configuration -> Preferences -> Windows Settings -> Right Click to Registry -> New -> Registry Item

 

Action : Create

Hive : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key Path : SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System
Value name : AllowDomainPINLogon
Value type : REG_DWORD
Value data : 00000001

Base : Hexadecimal

I should create this reg entry along with enabling Windows hello for business under Administrative templates? Or just creating this reg entry will do?

 

thanks! 

 

Hi @seyah96,

 

I think it's just enough to create the reg key.

 

Could you tell me or send a snapshot what configurations are in the Administrative Template?

Here's what's under computer policy>admin templates>Windows Hello for Business 

 

The settings does not seem to work though

Hi @seyah96,

 

Could you set all configurations here to "Not configured" and apply only the policy that create the Reg key?

@hasanemresatilmis 

 

Wow! That worked! 

Thank you! 

 

Hi @seyah96,

 

You're welcome. I'm so glad it worked :)
