What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

That is a Microsoft account, he wants it for domain accounts. You may use the tool "autologon" by Microsoft.

with some registry editing you can do an autologin
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"DefaultDomainName"="shorddomainname"
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
"DefaultUserName"="logonname"
"DefaultPassword"="password"

Open in new window

save as autologin.reg and merge, if you change your password you have to edit and remerge

...and the difference to using autologon: autologon does not use plain text to save the password. That's why it's recommendable.

It will bring up a UAC prompt, so what? Editing the registry at that locations needs elevated rights, anyway.
