I am sure that everyone at some time has checked that little box on the SCVMM console during the prompt for credentials “Automatically connect with these settings”
Only at some time in the future to want to turn that off.
Well, it surely isn’t obvious how to uncheck that box.
If you are super fast and you capture the window and attempt to click it, you will discover that the opportunity never exists. It is grayed out, blocked.
If you go looking for ini files or .config files you will come up dry. Anything in the user profile, again you are dry.
So, what is left? The registry.
Here it is:
Under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager Administrator Console\Settings\Shared in the registry you will find “autoConnect”
Simply modify that from “True” to “False” and you will once again be prompted for credentials.
Because who wants to logout and on to Windows as different users all the time just to act as different RBAC roles in SCVMM?
And what if I want to have multiple consoles open, each as a different user. I need to uncheck that for that case as well.
