Hi Guys

I need some assistance ! I need to set my Administrator profile on Windows Server 2008 to stay unlocked.
At the moment it keeps locking after inactivity.

Is there any way to set it so that it stays unlocked untill we manually lock the profile

Hi

Have tried that and it does not work but maybe I should rephrase my Question !

We do not work directly on the servers we have installed VNC on all our servers and work remotely. all the 2003 servers allow us to VNC to them without having to press ctr+alt+del, but all the 2008 servers require us to, now I need to set it so that it does not require the ctr+alt+del

Any suggestions

You can use ctr+alt+del through vnc. Just right click the title bar at the top of the vnc window and choose 'send ctrl+alt+del'

I would suggest that your better letting them lock themselves from a security point of view.
