    To add fingerprint login to Windows Active Directory 2016, you will need to follow the below steps:

    Verify that your server hardware supports fingerprint scanning.
    Install the necessary drivers for the fingerprint scanner on the server.
    Open the Group Policy Management Console by clicking Start, typing "gpedit.msc," and then pressing Enter.
    Navigate to the following path: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Biometrics.
    Enable the "Allow domain users to log on using biometrics" policy.
    Enable the "Allow users to log on using biometrics" policy.
    Save your changes and exit the Group Policy Management Console.
    Configure the biometric settings on the client machines by opening the Control Panel, selecting Biometric Devices, and then following the prompts.
    Once the biometric settings are configured on the client machines, users can log in to the server using their fingerprints.

    Please note that this solution requires a compatible fingerprint scanner and drivers, and may not work with all hardware configurations. Additionally, it's important to ensure that biometric authentication meets your organization's security and compliance requirements before implementing it.
