I am attempting to use control userpasswords2 on a Windows 10 image.


I previous had no issues with the following method:

  • Install Windows 7 to VM
  • run cloudbase-init installer, choose settings
  • edit conf files as needed
  • run sysprep from cloudbase-init, no shutdown
  • run control userpasswords2, select user for autologon, type password
  • shutdown image
  • upload to glance
  • launch instance
  • instance installs and auto logs on

However when I try this on win10 it fails to autologon

I am banging my head having tried a few times, in case I made a mistake!

Can anyone advise please?

I used version 0.9.12.dev26 which didn't interferer with running control userpasswords2 after the sysprep phase.

can you add more details on what do you mean by: "run control userpasswords2, select user for autologon, type password" on Windows 10?

Thank you,
