Got it, hadn't thought of the GP aspect. Though the storage tests in this case are supposed to spew warnings, since this won't be a shared-storage cluster (AlwaysOn Availability Groups). I'll nag them to move things around in AD.

comment Auto-login on a Remote Desktop session after reboot
Turns out this works even better on 2008 since there's no "console" session anymore. I did the usual auto-login registry hack, and the machine logs in at the console when restarted. But since it's not a special "console" session, remote desktop connections will take over that session normally if using the same login. Hooray! I can live with that.

At least it's not as bad as the one we used to have that was a DOS program running on an unpatched Win2K machine at a domain admin console. I'll leave the fallout of that one to your imagination.

No good, I'm afraid. We need the program to run interactively, since it has various reporting/administrative functionality that will be used occasionally throughout the day. Otherwise I probably would just take the service wrapper approach.

Hmm, I had totally forgotten that there's no more console session. Thus I may be able to do the standard auto-login registry hack, then connect to that session as though it were a standard remote session. I can't take the server down mid-day to test this, so I'll have to wait until after hours.
