Hello all,
i have windows server 2008 R2, with 7 terminal local users, every user have a separate desktop, and every user run his own program, i never logoff the users, and they always working simultaneously.

i need to auto login the users after i reboot the computer, today after every restart i need to log in with RDP to every user in order to get him working... how can i do it automatic after every reboot?

thanks

Really there isn't a way to autologin the users this is a security issue that MS doesn't give you an option to work with logging into a Terminal Server.

Now you can add the username and password to an RDP connection so the user would just have to double-click to get the connection

i have to do it automatic, because after reboot all the programs need to get working, i heard that there is a way with scripting, there has to be a way.

With RDP it must have a connection from the client. Could be a way by scripting but I haven't heard of a way.

In RDP you have options to start programs when the users logon look in the RDP client you will see the Options button you can click on this to see the options.

You have to manually logon with multiple users you can autologin with one user but you can't with multiple users on one server.

Windows only has one console login so you can not autologin multilple users at once through the console. You can login multiple users through RDP but not autologin

Why do you have to log the users in by hand after reboot why can they not login on thier own? Is there a service or program you have to start for them?

Create a .rdp file for each user that contains the credentials, then from within a batch file run out of startup on the server itself do something like:

start user1.rdp
start user2.rdp
....
start usern.rdp

This should start a session for each user running in a window on the server so that their individual startup programs and such will be working. However, they will still have to connect to their sessions from their client workstations

Good Luck
