Hey guys,

Is it possible to store the password via Command prompt?

Windows 7 Pro


Store password like (Start > Run > control userpasswords2 > enter > Uncheck User must enter a password to use this computer > Type in password > Confirm password > OK

If not through command prompt, maybe VBS?


Thanks!

Is this what you are looking for?

Cmdkey creates, lists, and deletes stored user names and passwords or credentials.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754243.aspx

From an elevated command prompt type in cmdkey /list to give you an idea of the syntax required.

eXample: Target Name =

cmdkey /list:Windowsleft:(token):name=tent@blewaway.com;serviceuri=mail.left.com

Currently stored credentials for Windowsleft:(token):name=tent@blewaway.com;serviceuri=mail.left.com:

    Target: Windowsleft:(token):name=tent@blewaway.com;serviceuri=mail.left.com
    Type: Generic
    User: tent@blewaway.com
    Local machine persistence


cmdkey /list:termsrv/vb

Currently stored credentials for termsrv/vb:

    Target: TERMSRV/vb
    Type: Domain Password
    User: tesr
    Local machine persistence

And this I think is my Automatic logon:

Target: LegacyGeneric:target=ULTIMATE64\Rob
    Type: Generic
    User: ULTIMATE64\Rob

nobus,

So you can lock the machine or log off.

To have the ability to connect to it remotely through LogMeIn with using Computer Access ode.

To have the ability to access shared resources without a blank password.

rrjmin0,

I dont think so, but maybe....I will test and report back. The article says Windows 8, and Server 2012 only.

rrjmin0,

I just tested and the cmdkey. It works on Server 2008, however it's not what I want. This accesses the Windows Credential Manager that is in the Advanced tab of (Start > Run > control userpasswords2).

It just might not be possible to do what I want :/
