Built-in step in a task sequence to Auto login as a domain or workstation user
We have the need to customize the desktop, deploy some user specific apps, as well as setup and configure Outlook and OneDrive. It would be nice to have the ability to have the system automatically log in as the user, provided we have their credentials, so that custom scripts can continue after the task sequence finishes. This is especially true for new hires as we do have their passwords and we make them change it once we turn over the system to them.
I've seen on several forums where others are attempting this as well with very little success. I've been using this method for years outside of SCCM and MDT. I used batch and Powershell scripts and this worked flawlessly but seems to be a chore in a task sequence.
