A way to login remotely with a DOS command?

Anyone knows of a tool or command that will send a login command to a system and cause it to login?

What I’m trying to do is initiate a Windows login on a remote computer through a command prompt. Is there a way to do this?

I’m trying to automate a USMT (user state migration tool) through command prompt (I got this part working through PSexec). The problem I’m running into issues because of the HD encryption... There must be a domain user logged in to the system for files to copy.

My goal is to send a login command to the remote system so that it will login… Then I’ll send a command to the system to lock it. This will allow me to run my USMT tools with PSexec.

Im open to anything.. VBs. .net.. whatever

Qlemo - Thanks for your comment. I'm not sure but I'm going to try that this afternoon. From reading the documentation from the company.. you can't copy files until a user is logged in.
