Getting Nt To Auto Logon

Alternate to using Domino as a service for NT and still have auto start, Usin
NT as a service prevents you the admin from killing off processes as are
started by the server ie have a higher security level...

NB only use this where the server has PHYSICAL security ie in a loced room with
limited access
Solution Provide the password for the NT server to the Registry
to access the registry run 'regedit' on NT
then use the folowing entries for the winlogon key
(You will need to add in AutoAdminLogon and DefaultPassword as string values)
then put the server in the Auto start Directory and it will work

(Following came from the MSoft public access Site ,Search for 'winlogon'

AutoAdminLogon {StringValue} 0 or 1
Specifies automatic logon if this value is 1. You must also add the value entry
DefaultPassword with a value for the user listed under DefaultUserName for
automatic logon to work.
When AutoAdminLogon is used, Windows NT automatically logs on the specified
user when the system is started, bypassing the CTRL+ALT+DEL logon dialog box.
DefaultPassword {StringValue} Password
Specifies the password for the user listed under DefaultUserName. Used during
automatic logon.
DefaultUserName {StringValue} Username
Specifies the name of the last successfully logged on user. If values are
defined for DefaultPassword and AutoAdminLogon, this is the user who is logged
on by default during automatic logon.
