[Windows Server] Enable automatic login

On Windows Server 2008/2012 it's possible to enable automatic login if the server is NOT a domain controller.

Simply run:

netplwiz.exe

Found under WIN_INSTALL_DIR\System32, and uncheck "Users must enter a username [...]". You'll have to insert you username and password and at the next reboot you'll brought directly to your desktop.

If your server is a Domain Controller (DC) too, then you cannot use this tool, but will have to uncheck the same setting from the "Active Directory Users and Computers" snap-in
