    Schedule reboot with auto logon

    Hi. I want to schedule my server to reboot. I already know how to do
    this with scheduled task and the shutdown.exe utility.

    However, I need a specific user account to automatically logon upon
    reboot, as this user needs to be logged in for some jobs to run.

    Does anyone know how I can do this?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the link, but I don't want to permanently overwrite the
    login settings. If I do what that article said, then everyone who
    subsequently tries to remote desktop to the server will be logged in
    under the username I specify. I don't want to change the behaviour,
    but just want one user account to log in to the server. Is there a
    scheduled task I can set up that will kick off a remote desktop
    session that logs into the server?

    Re: Schedule reboot with auto logon

    Hey,

    The link I gave earlier would have the following scenario:
    - User reboots the server (through RDP or on-site), and the server will auto
    logon (on the console). However if you RDP, you/whoever will still need to
    authenticate b4 they can log on to the server.

    However for users who are on-site, they will be able to use the server when
    someone restarts it. To combat this, you can create a shortcut to Lock the
    server and put the shortcut into the Startup folder.

    Using the method from the link doesn't mean that users who log on through
    RDP no need to authenticate.
