Automatic/Simultaneous Logon

July 29, 2010 at 12:08:46
Specs: Windows XP
i have a setup with 6 different station, each with 3 XP pro machines. one user needs to log into each machine, and only one user uses a station.
Currently, the user has to log in 3 separate times.

soon i am putting all 18 machines onto a domain.
Is there a way for the user to be able to log into a station's primary machine, the server acknowledges, and automatically logs that user into the other to machines on the given station?
same with logging off, but thats not as urgent
Its got to be possible, just not sure if someone has done it.

"Its got to be possible"

Sorry but it is not. Doing so would be against the rules of server security.

But you could set the machines to autologon under a set account upon bootup.

Of course you just opened your network to whom ever walks up to the workstation.

what are these rules for server security?

is it not possible to use the server to log a given user into a a client machine? ive read that is possible.
so why cant a script be written? the server gets a record that this user has logged into this machine. use a script to find that info, then use the script to have the server log that user into the other 2 station machines.

servers don't log clients in. clients log into servers. you have the process backwards.

I would suggest you spend some time understanding how user authenication to a server works.

Perhaps this will help

The rules of security I am referring to is the design ALL secure systems use which is one of challenge and authenication. In other words you have to provide valid account and password information before you are allowed access to server resources.
