Client PC's ask for User & Password at every re-boot

Is the local user on your PC the same as your NW user? and if so do they have the same password?

It seems there is something very basic that is corrupted/broken for this not to be working correctly.

Either one of those Add-Ins is causing the block or the profile is corrupt is my best guess. I would delete the account and re-create it.

Well 2 of my 3 accounts would need to be deleted if that's the case.

Also, as I mentioned in my 1st post - same issue when I created a new user 3 months ago.

 

I may try it again.

I was hoping someone had a suggestion of how to handle this within the server's manager console.

There's a lot of settings under Configuration -> Local Users and Groups -> that may need to be adjusted.

I'm just not ready to go messing with it without knowing what may happen.

 

WHS2011 = Vista

Make dummy accounts and mess with them until you find out what's going on, then make the appropriate adjustments to the production accounts. I tend to make a new test account for each change I make, just to ensure the changes aren't interacting, at least until I determine that multiple changes are required.

Ok, that sounds like a good idea.

 

Don't have anything to loss at this point.

 

Thanks

      Hi All,
       
      Seeking some help and/or advice on the following issue. I just completed my WHS 2011 build and started the process of running the connector software on each of my machines. After successfully installing the connector software on my desktop PC (windows 7), the computer restarted and booted up - then prompted me for username and password before logging into Windows. I don't recall ever setting up a username and password on the PC. I've had it configured where it has always automatically logged into Windows without requiring credentials.
       
      I had to do a system restore and now hesitant to try to reinstall the connector software. Is there a way to disable the username/password requirement? If not, can someone please advise how to replace the existing one that's on my PC? I assume its in the User Controls section of the Control Panel, but not sure exactly what the path is.
       
      Thanks!

      Sometime back my brother-in-law purchased an HP Mediasmart LX-195 and set it up. Once running they basically ignored it for a long time. Now they need some files from a backup but the password they had written down no longer gets them into the console.
       
      I have tried many different combinations of upper, lower, etc. characters to open the console. I have also tried the username of Admin, admin, administrator and Administrator. So far I have had no sucess getting into their box.
       
      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get to the backups and data?
       
      Thanks,
      Walter
