Issue



There is a requirement for a kiosk-mode workstation to power on, automatically log on without any intervention from the user, and display the Symantec Workspace Corporate logon shell.


Solution



  1. Create a domain user account.
    • You will use this account for workstation auto-logon.
    • This account should be separate from the Common Workstation Account.
  2. Navigate to the following registry key:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.
    • Modify the ‘AutoAdminLogin’ value to ‘1′.
  3. From the Run dialog, type the command “control userpasswords2” (without the quotes). 
    • Check and then uncheck “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer”.
    • When you click OK, you will be prompted for the Username / Password to Automatically Log On.
  4. Navigate to the following registry key:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    •  Modify the 'DefaultDomainName' to the correct value.
  5. Install SWC client as normal.
  6. Restart the machine and it should auto-logon and display the SWC logon shell.
