Autologon fails after mdt domain-join .

Hi All,

We have changed the GPO settings to change the built in Administrator account rename to a different name (eg.qadmin). After the GPO change, we have noticed that the autologin fails after the domain join in OS deployment via MDT. The login has been stuck with the image attached here.

However, i tried to add the domain account in "unattended" file, but it fails. Also cleanup is not happening after the installation and the leftover files and mapped drives are not removing due to this. Please someone suggest a solution on this.

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft MECM Q&A forum.

    1,Firstly, it's recommended to check the bdd.log and smsts.log on the client to see if there is any helpful information.

    2,Please try to configure the AutoLogon account in OS Info tab.
