    How do I re-enable PIN + Fingerprint sign-in for domain PCs?


    A previous GPO tech set these to be disabled by default and I can't figure out how to re-enable. The options stay greyed out no matter what I try. I don't want to remove the settings to disable from the default policy so I have created an additional GPO for certain PCs to have it enabled and I'm just trying to find all of the settings to get this working again for the approved users.

    This is what I have set currently...
    In Computer -> Policies -> Admin Templates:
    System/Logon -> Turn on PIN sign-in = Enabled
    Windows Components/Biometrics -> Allow domain users to log on using biometrics = Enabled
    Windows Components/Biometrics -> Allow users to log on using biometrics = Enabled
    Windows Components/Biometrics -> Allow the use of biometrics = Enabled
    Windows Components/Microsoft Passport for Work -> Use biometrics = Enabled
    Windows Components/Microsoft Passport for Work -> Use Microsoft Passport for Work = Enabled

    Any suggestions are most welcome Disable or Enable Domain Users Sign in using Biometrics on Windows 10 :)

    Thanks

    Hello,

    as the title said.

    it was working fine with earlier version of windows 10, but with the new upgrade its not possible.

    local account working fine.

    what i tested:

    copied new admx from the win 10 anniversitey upgrade install to gpo policy store.

    enabled the following gpos for my computer + user account:

    Policy
    Setting

    Disabled

    Show first sign-in animation
    Disabled

    Enabled

    Turn on convenience PIN sign-in
    Enabled

    Comment

    Allow domain users to log on using biometrics
    Enabled

    Allow the use of biometrics

    Policy
    Setting
    Comment

    Use a hardware security device
    Enabled

    Use biometrics
    Enabled

    Use Windows Hello for Business
    Enabled

    but still, its like the gpo doesn1T even applied, picture login enabled, rest is disabled.

    I'm missing something ? or there is an issue with the admx file ?
