Pinned topic [Windows Logon] Feature Explained

Question: Can you explain how Windows logons work in HSLT? We have seen the Linux logins via SSH shared keys, but not for Windows.


+ HSLT doesn't control Windows Logon. This means HSLT only manages "Windows provisioning". After Windows VM gets launched, HSLT won't touch that VM, unless the user decides to terminate. You can log into Windows VM by using RDP or VNC or SPICE. That's it.

+ Syspreps. Generally, Microsoft Windows Syspreps reset the operating system in VM (after being launched from image) as factory configuration. For example, when you log in Windows VM, you would have to supply CD key, create user ID and passwd, etc. Syspreps could force a VM launched joining into a particular Windows Group and enable/ disable specific drivers, e.g. virtio driver.
