How to configure the DSSRV to auto login to the Windows desktop using the DSServiceUser account.

Issue

Would like the DSSRV to boot to the desktop without having to enter the password for the DSServiceUser account.

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

DSSRV version 7.4.149
Digital Sentry Network Video Recorder
MS Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Cause

The DSSRV requires the password be entered to load the DSServiceUser desktop.

Resolution

  1. <Windows Key + R> to bring up the run prompt.
  2. Type in netplwiz and click OK or button.
  3. This will bring up a "User Accounts" window, highlight the DSServiceUser account and uncheck the box "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".


     
  4. Click Apply and when prompted, enter the password for the DSServiceUser account, then click OK (default password = dsserviceuser).
