Cool Solution - Autologin to Terminalserver
From Univention Wiki
This article describes briefly how you can set up autologin to a rdp terminalserver for UCC Thinclients.
- UCS DC Master with installed modul UCC
- A joined rdp terminalserver
Modify UCC image
First off all you need to download two RDP session scripts: RDP-autologin RDP-autologin.desktop Afterwards we will move them in the UCC image. Therefor you need to move the session scripts to the UCS DC Master. Login at the Master and mount the image as in section Modification of existing images described. On the Master move the scripts to the image:
mv RDP-autologin /mnt/img/usr/share/xsessions/ mv RDP-autologin.desktop /mnt/img/usr/share/xsessions/
Unmount the image and create a new MD5 checksum so that the ucc can determine whether the image has been modified.
Set up clients in the Univention Management Console
Login on the Univention Management Console.
Create a new policy under "Policies" -> "+Add" -> "Container: ldap_base:/policies/config-registry" -> "Policy type: Policy: Univention Configuration Registry"
For additional information about the configuration of UCC systems and policies see the UCC documentation.
Allocate a name for the policy and add following variables to the policy:
rdp/domainname Domain lightdm/autologin/session RDP-autologin lightdm/autologin yes rdp/server rdp-terminalserver
Thereafter you have to referencing the policy to your desired computer objects.
Choose a UCC Thinclient in the Computers modul. If you are in the edit mode go to the TAB "[Policies]" and the section "Policy: Univention Configuration Registry" with the field "Select policy configuration" and choose your previously created policy.
In addition go to the Images TAB and change the Boot variant to "Image boot with update check / Initial installation"
Save changes and reboot the client.
Now the client should be downloading and copy the updated image to the harddisk. Reboot a second time and you will be auto logged in to the rdp terminalserver.
