Automatic Log on

I have a novel server running win2k. I need to reset it every night. I've automated the shutdown process wth a batch file launched by task manager. However, I need to get the PC to log back onto the novel network after reboot. Does anyone have a utility or some code....anything?

What you want to download from microsoft is TweakUI

This will allow you to enable automatic loggins and tweak alot of other things.

For security reasons I would also suggest that in the Windows Start-up you create a short cut to the Workstation Lock command so that when the server loggin's in automatically it instantly locks the console:

Shortcut for Locking the Console

You can lock the console without having to use CTRL+ALT+DEL or a screensaver.

To do so, create a shortcut to rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation. Then, launch the shortcut to lock the console.

This can be used on both Windows 2000 Server and Professional.

Nah, there is a registry entry that you can add assuming you're using the Novell client.  Check this out...
