Have you configured your Windows XP to authenticate against OpenLDAP or do you have all the user accounts on the XP templates before cloning them?
Dear Dave, thanks for this. As you may have guessed, I had not configured XP to authenticate separately against OpenLDAP, and had not realised that this was necessary. I presume therefore that the autologon parameter merely tells Windows to take the authentication credentials from the VDI, without creating a new user? The most elegant solution would be to authenticate against OpenLDAP, using something like pgina with the ldap plugin, and perhaps samba to map the user home directories for personal desktops. lf you, or other list members, have any advice or experience in relation to this, it would be very useful and undoubtedly save me a lot of time.
