Stop Server Manager Loading After Logon

On newer Windows Servers, Server manager opens after logging on.

This can simply be disabled by:

Open Control Panel > Open Administrative Tools > Open Task Scheduler.

In Task Scheduler drill down to Microsoft\Windows\Server Manager.

Find the task named ServerManager, with the Description “Task for launching Initial Configuration Tasks or Server Manager at logon.”

Disable this task or delete the Trigger Action.

GPO logon Script not running – Windows Server 2012R2

A VBS script called by “User Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Scripts\Logon” was not running on a Windows Server 2012 R2 RDS.

Microsoft have added a new feature to Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 that delays any scripts in the above location by 5 minutes.  So they will not execute until 5 mins after logon.

To disable this feature set the following to 0:

“Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy\Configure Logon Script Delay”
