Unlock Workstation

Recommended Posts



I am trying to run a script that would unlock a workstation. I understand that CTRL+ALT+DEL cannot be simulated. Is there another way?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon



0 - Do not force authentication inline (default)

1 - Require online authentication to unlock

The preceding value controls whether a full logon is performed during the unlock process. This can force a validation at the domain controller for the user attempting the unlock process.

NOTE: If the value is not present, it functions as if it had been set to 0 (zero).
