Script to log in a user to windows

2 posts in this topic

I have several suites of 30 or so PCs. When I install software on teh server I have eto test it on every PC, logged in as an admin user, a member of staff and as a student.

I want a script I can kick off remotely (using psexec or similar) that will fill in the username box, password and choose the correct domain and then click OK to log that user in.

I can log the users out "en masse" using psshutdown, what I can't do yet is log the users in.

It would be good for exams as well when staff can just run a script that logs in each of the Pcs in as a known exams user.

Any ideas?

I doesn't work that way.

You'll have to write to the AutoAdminLogon keys at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and then force a reboot. Also configure the user's login scripts to clean up those keys afterwards. Be sure to use temporary accounts because if anything goes wrong, the credential info could be left behind in plain text in the registry. (Which can also be cleaned up with remote registry access.)
