Getting no login Server available while trying to login with service account with autologin

Getting no login Server available while trying to login with service account with autologin

So I have set up auto login in the windows registry for my one service account but whenever it tries login I am getting error that no logon servers are available. But the same service account i use to login normally just like we do as rdp I can login to that server without any issue and no error is there. So why am I getting error only during auto login time. Please help me on this issue. It's just stopping me to move forward with my work

Autologin seems to require cached credentials since the account tries to log in before network access is available. So the account already exists on that system? (Sounds like it does from your description, but just confirming)

Do you have all 3 required reg keys set properly?

1) HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\winlogon
Value: AutoAdminLogon
Type: REG_SZ
Data: 1

2) HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\winlogon
Value: DefaultPassword
Type: REG_SZ
Data: (fill your password here)

3) HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\winlogon
Value: DefaultUserName
Type: REG_SZ
Data: (fill your username here, without the domain name)

If it's still not working, is the computer on the domain? Is the service account local or domain?
If the computer is on the domain, does it default to domain logins?
If it's a service account local to that machine and the machine is on the domain / defaults to domain logins, try entering your username as .\(username) or localhost\(username) so it switches to local login.
