Auto logon tool for w2k server & prof??

By FaisalMasood ·
Is there any tool available for auto logon on w2000 server or professional pcs. So that I configure one account with password on it & it automatically logon that machine with that account. & when i want to disable it then it allows to do so.

I wan to use it for our development server where developers need interactive access. I want to use it so that they can't see me typing admin password.

I need the same tool for Win NT 4 server.
In NT 4 resource kit there was one Autologon utility. But is there any other tool. or from where I can get just Autologon of Res.Kit of NT4.

Plz help me out.

For 2K

As long as the system is NOT joined to an NT domain. (if it is part of an NT domain then this option is not available)

Go to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Users and Passwords/Users

From there you can disable the logon and win2k will use the admin account to automatically log in.

**You will lose ALL security with this option!**

For NT4 Wkstn/Srvr, it is a registry Hack. I would have to research that one out, I don't know it off the top of my head.

For NT4 I found some utilities.

You can do a registry hack to both types of os nt4 and w2k I can even send you a registry script to do it with that you can edit to put your own password and username in, then when you want to enable auto login you would have to run the registry script to disable auto logon you hold the shift key and go to start button and log off then log in as someone else.email me at sstilen@midcomp.com

you can do it on a server through a reg hack
I learned how to do this originally by looking for security holes imediatly after running sysdiff and noticed that the utility has to put the admin password in the registryu to continue the install afterthe reboot but YOU CAN DO THIS WITH ANY ACCOUNT NOT JUST AN ADMINISTRATORS ACCOUNT, IT COULD BE A GUEST ACCOUNT EVEN.

When I say that you will lose ALL security, I mean Physical security.

I mean that anyone can walk up to the system and log on, essentially because there will be no conventional logon screen.

There are obvious ways of making it inacessable overthe network.

This also meets your requirement because you can reverse it.

However, you can still set up file security but if they are logging in as an local admin, they have access to everything.

Which is why I say you lose all security.My opinion, Make another account on that machine that is not an admin, perhaps as a power user, and still enforce security.

That way your developers do not know the admin password and you can still enforce some sort of security.

Like I said above though, if this machine is in a domain, you have no option of disabling the logon.

Please see Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q234562 "How to Enable Automatic Logon in Windows 2000" Pleas note that this works only on Win2K Pro, it won't apply to Win2K Server.
