How can I change the Autologin (RDP) to be in full screen instead of windowed mode?.



This is done via the VBS login application script file:

1)  Check which application file your endpoint is using. 

PIM Enterprise Management -> Privileged Accounts -> Endpoints -> Modify Endpoint -> (Locate your endpoint) -> Login Applications (tab) -> Take note of the "Selected Applications" and identify the RDP one (eg: RDP).

2)  Modify the Application file.

C:\jboss-4.2.3.GA\server\default\deploy\IdentityMinder.ear\config\sso_scripts\ folder and locate the VBS file that matches the name you obtained in the previous step (eg: RDP.vbs) 


3) Set it in full screen mode.

 Uncomment the line under "Set pupmObj = CreateObject("ACLauncher.ACWebLauncher")" section: pupmObj.SetRDPOption "screen mode id","i","2"

After saving the file (RDP.vbs) all the autologin sessions via RDP that use this application file will start in full screen mode.
