In KACE Systems Deployment Appliance, can I create a post-installation task to reboot the system and login as a domina user instead of local admin?

this is not a problem:
1. set the autologin to the amount of logins you really need until this special task.
2. setup a join domain-Task
3. setup a autologin-Task for the domain user
4. check the checkbox "Reboot needed" for this task
5. (optional) setup a task for disabling the standard user

You can also use the wizard to join domain, use the domain user etc. (you need to modify the unattended.xml a bit to do so)

  • Hi Nico_K thanks for the answer, I'm stuck in step #3 how do I do the autologin to login as a domain user, where I put the creds?
    • you need to put the nessesary keys in the registry.
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

      The keys DefaultUserName, DefaultPassword and AutoAdminLogon (plus AutoLogonCount if you want to limit this) are needed. the Auto ones are numbers, the first two strings
