Sorry to start yet another thread. But I have a question about Thinkbox Deadline.

I wanted to find out if there is a way to have a deadline slave rejoin the render queue after a reboot automatically even if the slave does not have a user logged in. We just changed from windows workgroup to Domain Server. All machines used to automatically login as admin when rebooted but now requires manual login. Does anyone know how to get around this?

Thank you

Brad Falk

Hi Brad - one way around this on a Windows machine is to run the slave as a service - only problem then is that the idle detection doesnt work because Windows services cant interact with the desktop.
You will need to make an AD domain user that the Deadline service can use which has rights to the various shares you are accessing (when installing the slave as a service, you will see the installer script ask for this information)... alternatively, I think you can also just edit the slaves config file to change how it starts up.
Hope that helps!

It is possible to auto login with a domain user account. You have to do a little registry hacking.
