  •  

    Is it possible for Communicator 2007 to remember a user's password so they are automatically logged in to OCS at startup?

  • For non domain machines

     

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Communicator
    "SavePassword"=dword:00000001

     

    REG_DWORD = SavePassword

    You can set it You can configure this policy under both HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER, but the policy setting under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE takes precedence

     

    Values.

    Not set = User choice (default).
    0 = Users do not have the option to save password.
    1 = Users have the option to save password.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Alistair

  • It should probably be noted that those registry settings are simply for 'controlling' that behavior; by default the OC client should already present the user the option to save the password for future authentication attempts.
