Windows server 2016 autologon domen user

On WINDOWS server 2016 I need to make an autologon of a domain user, after restarting the server.
I do it through the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon
AutoAdminLogon 1
DefaultDomainName domain
DefaultUserName user
DefaultPassword pass
After rebooting the server, the atologon does not work.
Tried through
https://docs.microsoft.com/ru-ru/sysinternals/downloads/autologon
The result is the same, the autologon does not work.
Tell me what else you can do?

ps: Under the Windows 10 operating system, the above methods work.

I believe this could be due to windows server logon banner.

This registry change that you made does not work if the Logon Banner value is defined on the server either by a GPO or by a local policy.

Try changing the policy so that it does not affect the computer you're trying, the autologon feature might works as expected.
