    Group Login

    Is there a simple way (TM) of logging in a whole room of computers?

    Clients are Win XP, Server 2k3. I've seen the option in iTALC (which I'm trialling in 1 suite) and some third-party classroom management software but I would have thought that this would be possible in a vanilla Active Directory setup.

    Each room of PCs has an individual OU.

    Thanks for any help/suggestions.

    Not sure if MS have done anything special, but, something that you can try, although I never have needed to:

    1. install tweakui (or similar), tell it to auto-logon a pre-selected user;
    2. find this change in the registry, and export this into a .reg file;
    3. use reg2adm (or similar) to make this into an .ADM file;
    4. apply this .ADM file to a Group Policy for this room only;
    5. reboot (twice);

    This would also show you which machines aren't processing the AD GPOs properly.

    Thanks for the idea.

    But it would take just as long to go through applying an adm and group policy refresh as it would be to just nip around the room and log in all the machines myself.

    I was thinking maybe more script file or an application.
