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

There is no way to access the WinLogon process remotely, as that would be a big security issue (by mimicking logins).
Isn't is sufficient to load a domain profile with PsExec and the corresponding credentials?

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.
