Hi,

I have a server running WHS 2011. When I switch on the PC, it boots up and starts the server but no users are logged in. If I start a remote desktop connection to the server from another computer, it logs in the administrator and shows the server's desktop. At this point, it starts various other services that I have running on it, such as SABnzbd .

I'd like to have a user logged in automatically upon boot, so that the server boots to a desktop and loads things up without me having to initiate a remote desktop connection.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

go to run and type "control userpasswords2"

Untick the ctrl+alt+delete option on advanced tab

see if you have the options no the advanced tab to enable auto login. not sure on whs 2011.

If not you have to edit registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Value:ForceAutoLogon
Type: REG_SZ
Data: 1
