AutoAdminLogon in Windows Server 2019 not working

Hello all, For days I have been trying to enable AutoLogon on Windows Server 2019, however all attempts failed. I have also checked nteractive logon message text and title, so both values are empty but without success.

I used this script:

reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v "AutoLogonCount" /f

reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon" /v AutoAdminLogon /d 1  /f

reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon" /v AutoLogonCount /t REG_DWORD /d 10  /f

reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon" /v DefaultDomainName /d WIN-6JL40BBNPK7  /f

reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon" /v DefaultUserName /d Administrator  /f

reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon" /v DefaultPassWord /d Pa$$w0rd /f

Any idea?

I have has luck with systernals, and not much else. But like Channeler stated, I think more information is needed to answer your question fully.

Firat of all: sorry for my late response.

I found out that the enhanced session mode of Hyper-V avoid the auto logon. It works like a charm after turning this feature off
