Subject Re: Cloud Instance Manager only sets password after reboot on Windows 2012 R2
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2015 12:30:36 GMT
Found an Autologin in an auto-unattended XML file that does indeed have
credentials that don't match what is in the packer JSON file. We will
change that and see if it fixes the auto login problem. Maybe by extension
it will also fix our main problem.

Thanks.
