Computer will not auto logon

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
we operate in a domain environment, and needed an XP computer set up for auto logon. I set it up in the registry (at the bottom with altered information in bold). I added "ForceAutoLogon"="1" to hopefully fix the issue. what is happening is that I will boot the computer, then the login will fail. the failure is due to it switching from logging onto the domain to local computer.

note: i have changed all domain/logon credential keys in this post

changing the "DefaultUsername" to DOMAIN\USERNAME instead of USERNAME will temporarily solve the issue.

after the first logon using that, the key gets changed to USERNAME, and although the defaultdomain, altdefaultdomain, and password are all correct, it will fail during the second boot. each time it fails, i can see that the drop down box used to select which domain to use will be switched from DOMAIN to HOSTNAME (this computer)

what can i do to make the login not fail?

bump. this might be more of a technet question. I'm not sure how many people here actually get into the administration of systems and editing the registry

    I've never needed to do this over a domain; but try doing it through the Windows UI and see if the setting sticks: Press [Win]+[R], type "control userpasswords2" and press [Enter].  Un-tick "Users must enter a user name and password...", click [OK] and then enter the logon credentials in the dialog that pops up and see if it works.

I'll try that, thanks. I think i looked into that, but don't remember my results. It would essentially do the same thing. I think it may have to do with some of the policy settings that were applied to this computer to lock it down. This isn't something that i've been working too hard on, just working on in my spare time at work.
