Question Skip login ID and password in RHEL 5


Hi ALL,

When we boot our RHEL machines to run level 5, we get a red color screen asking for Login & password, and after this authentication our chosen desktop GNOME/KDE opens up.

Is there someway out to skip this login screen asking for Login and Password.

Actually, one of my monitors is not working anymore. Thus, I wanted to take the "remote desktop connection" of this machine.

Is this possible ??

As an RHCE asking a quesiton in an enterprise forum you want to bypass authentication on your servers? Are you back in control of your own account now??

if you can't get direct access, then just don't use runlevel 5 in the first place and run vnc / freenx to get a dedicated remote session.

If you really do want to pretend you're running XP ;-) then the login config tool in the administration menus (can't remember the system-config-toolthingy name) will often give you the option to automatically login. but on a server?? really????

I can do this very well, but I was just curious to automate login process on run level 5.

Thanks anyways.

Well as I said, it's probably well catered for in the gdm setup.
