Guest

On a Win 2000 PC Under Control Panel, Then User & Passwords, Then User Tab.
The line USER MUST ENTER A USER NAME AND PASSWORD TO USE THIS COMPUTER is not
there. My question How can I get thsi pc to log on automaticly with my local
profile account. I normally just Uncheck that checkmark and then try my
password.
(The line USER MUST ENTER A USER NAME AND PASSWORD TO USE THIS COMPUTER was
there until i unchecked the check mark to add new user profile then it went
away)
Please Help me I tried everything

So, then it is not possible to enable automatic logon on W2000 Server, is
it?

But I need it because I have a server that it runs a process that uses a
network unit and I don't know hot to have a network unit if you don't start
a session.

The answer to the first question is yes it is possible. For the second issue
you'll need to give us all of the details.

Hi.

Then, do you say that it is possible to enable automatic logon on a W2000
Server?

However, I have read this article
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q234/5/62.ASP and it says
that automatic logon is only possible for W2000 Professional.

About the second issue, I have a customer with a W2000 server. There is a
process running that uses a network unit in order to access to a shared
folder of other computer. It needs to access to that shared folder because
there is an Access database.
But if nobody starts a session on that server then the network unit doesn't
exist, so the process can't access the data.
I need to have the network unit for the process to work.

Thanks,

M.G.

1.) Yes, use the reghack in the article.
2.) In this case always use UNC paths since mapped drive won't exist when no
one is logged on.

Hi.

But how can I use UNC paths? I think it should be used by the process but it
should be written on the source code.

Thanks, bye,

Yes, the application front end for the access database should use UNC path
instead of mapped drives.
