CLI automation remote desktop


I am trying to execute an scenario using CLI and the windows scheduler, but the controller machine is a remote machine. Is there any way to execute this without having an active remote session on the server?

Hi @1589316098702 ,

If I understand correctly, what you need is an active user session on your controller machine.

Just a workaround, maybe you can try to add a registry key on your target machine, to simulate a logged in user, in this way, it will have an activated user session every time  it restart.


e.g. create a reg file with below content with target credential, and run it to add the registry key. 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
