    AutoLogin Admin Template (GPO)

    I searched for an AutoLogin admin template online and I was trying to test it out but it doesnt seem to import into my testing OU. It physically goes through all the motions of successfully adding the .adm file, but if you browse to that folder in the GPO Editor then there is no new entry for auto login. Below is the code:

    *Code*
    CLASS MACHINE
    CATEGORY "System"
    CATEGORY "Logon"
    POLICY "AutoLogon"
    EXPLAIN "These settings can be used to allow the system to logon automatically. To enable autologon, set the first two settings (AutoAdminLogon and ForceAutologon) to 1, and then fill in the appropriate account information. Keep in mind that this information will be stored in cleartext in the systems registry."
    KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

    PART "AutoAdminLogon" NUMERIC REQUIRED TXTCONVERT
    VALUENAME "AutoAdminLogon"
    MIN 0 MAX 1 DEFAULT "0" SPIN 1
    END PART

    PART "ForceAutoLogon" NUMERIC REQUIRED TXTCONVERT
    VALUENAME "ForceAutoLogon"
    MIN 0 MAX 1 DEFAULT "0" SPIN 1
    END PART

    PART "DefaultUserName" EDITTEXT REQUIRED
    VALUENAME "DefaultUserName"
    DEFAULT "Username" MAXLEN 128
    END PART


    PART "DefaultPassword" EDITTEXT REQUIRED
    VALUENAME "DefaultPassword"
    DEFAULT "Password" MAXLEN 128
    END PART

    PART "DefaultDomainName" EDITTEXT REQUIRED
    VALUENAME "DefaultDomainName"
    DEFAULT "Domain" MAXLEN 128
    END PART

    PART "AltDefaultUserName" EDITTEXT REQUIRED
    VALUENAME "AltDefaultUserName"
    DEFAULT "Should match username above" MAXLEN 128
    END PART

    PART "AltDefaultDomainName" EDITTEXT REQUIRED
    VALUENAME "AltDefaultDomainName"
    DEFAULT "Should match domain above" MAXLEN 128
    END PART

    END POLICY
    END CATEGORY
    END CATEGORY

    *EndCode*

    RE: AutoLogin Admin Template (GPO)

    The problem seems to be fixed now. This policy is defined as "Old-Style Preferences". It is in Sybex's Group Policy > Profiles and IntelliMirror because this is an Old Style policy the Froup Policy Editor filters in out of view. So to view this Administrative Template, we need to go to View > Filtering and then uncheck the "Only show policy settings that can be fully managed" option. After that we have to go to Group Policy Editor and then go to the Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Login section and we will then be able to manipulate the AutoLogin Administrative Template.
