    Mass Login

    Hi all

    A teacher has just asked me if it is possible to login 33 computers in the ICT Suite in one go from one computer. The children are only 4 years old so the staff login in for them, but doing that 33 times is a pain, so is there any software etc that will allow you to use one login username/password to login in all 33 computers while you are sat at just one computer?

    Thanks

    We use Netsupport for classroom management, this has the functionality to do what you are wanting to achieve.

    try this,

    Code:
    @echo off 
    if "%1" == "" goto end
    for /l %%i in (1,1,33) do (
    start "Addreg %%i" reg add "\\%1-%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v AutoAdminLogon /t REG_SZ /d 1
    start "Addreg %%i" reg add "\\%1-%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v DefaultUserName /t REG_SZ /d [Usernamehere]
    start "Addreg %%i" reg add "\\%1-%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v DefaultDomainName /t REG_SZ /d %1%%i
    start "Addreg %%i" reg add "\\%1-%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v DefaultPassword /t REG_SZ /d [passwordhere]
    start "Addreg %%i" reg add "\\%1-%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v AutoLogonCount /t REG_DWORD /d 1
    )
    :end
    Copy this into a bat file and give it a go. Please note this isn't tested and i would test it first but is should work and only log them in once - I think not used it for a while but giver it a go and see what happens

    call the batch file from cmd and give the room name i.e. ICTSUITE as an arguement

    Let me know how you get on

    Hello

    We use abtutor in our ICT suite and id defintly reccommend it!

    It was only about £200 and that covers all computers in the suite.

    Its got loads of features,

    you can lock students (good feature to get attention)
    can remote control workstations
    you can send commands directly to each computer
    stop students accessing internet or any other program you desire
    you can make them all turn on in the morning (if you set up wake on lan)
    and most importantly in your case you can log them all at once or individually

    Hope that helps,
    Matt

    OK,

    try this
    Code:
    @echo off 
    for /l %%i in (1,1,33) do (
    start "Addreg ICTSUITE%%i" reg add "\\ICTSUITE%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v AutoAdminLogon /t REG_SZ /d 1
    start "Addreg ICTSUITE%%i" reg add "\\ICTSUITE%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v DefaultUserName /t REG_SZ /d [Usernamehere]
    start "Addreg ICTSUITE%%i" reg add "\\ICTSUITE%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v DefaultDomainName /t REG_SZ /d [domainnamehere]
    start "Addreg ICTSUITE%%i" reg add "\\ICTSUITE%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v DefaultPassword /t REG_SZ /d [passwordhere]
    start "Addreg ICTSUITE%%i" reg add "\\ICTSUITE%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /f /v AutoLogonCount /t REG_DWORD /d 1
    )
    the only thing it may not do is add the preceeding 0 from machine 1 to 9 we are naughty here and do not put the 0 in for this very reason.

    basically the code steps from 1 to 33 adding/ altering the regentries specified then when the child attempts to login it should automatically log in for them - until they reboot... fingers crossed.

    same as before add it to a batch file and run it

    teaches me to read my code through before I post next time

    good luck

    iTalc can do this and is free.

    The only issue is that the way it does it .. so if someone interupts it doing it's thing then it might fail at logon with incorrect usernames etc.

    Also means you can allow staff tutor access to do it.

    Of course, it all then depends, are you logging them all in with the same username/password combo or (even at such a young age) do they have assigned individual usernames / passwords that you need to use?

    The younger children all use one username and no password.

    In that case iTalc should work well for you, or if you have the cash NetSupport is a great tool too that I use on one site.

    No Problems, I am not a scripting guru was just trying to butcher someone elses work

    we use LanSchool here but we are a secondary so iTalc may do what you need but i have no experience with it

    Hope you find what you are looking for

    thanks all, could you give me some idea of price for Lan School and Netsupport, we need 32 client versions and 1 teacher version.

    Ab Tutor looks good for just £200, also had a look at Netops School, but thats gonna cost around £600-800, does everything but mass login
