How to configure the Windows Gold image to allow an auto-admin login

Product Line:  VERDE

You can configure the Windows Gold image to allow an auto-admin login.  The Windows account has to be a member of the local Administrators group.

You set this up using the built-in utility called:  netplwiz

You point to the local Admin account and don’t require the User and Password to login.


Then you need a local Verde account setup, so you can provision the Windows Desktop.  Verde requires a local User to have a Password.

The last thing is that this ONLY works now, with SPICE protocol.


A request was put in to allow RDP and UXP to work.
