Using GPO to auto log in client PC's


  • I'm helping out in a friend in his internet cafe and trying to work out how to configure a GPO for an OU to make all the customer PC's auto login to one account/password for all PC's in each group.   

    I'm trying to avoid setting each pc individually so if a change needs to be implemented it only needs to be done once instead of 70 times as it currently does.  (meaning more than just log in details)

    any searches I have done seem to indicate this might not be possible so I thought I'd ask the Microsoft forum directly

  • Not possible sorry. You might be able to script something with psexec and autologon from the sysinternals suite in order to automate the process a little.

    Unless someone else has a better idea...

  • this is similar to my next plan... 

    was going to look into creating a registry file on a network location and run it on each pc but that probably wasn't going to work either, so I can make a script with this instead.  

    I suppose if the account auto logs in <g class="gr_ gr_493 gr-alert gr_tiny gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling multiReplace" data-gr-id="493" id="493">i</g> should never need to worry about changing the password anyway

    many <g class="gr_ gr_510 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Punctuation only-ins replaceWithoutSep" data-gr-id="510" id="510">thanks</g> Brian
