Windows Screen Resolution Cookbook

Cookbook Version Build Status

Sets headless screen resolution on Windows.

It does this by:

  • creating a new user called rdp_local
  • creating a startup script to RDP into the specified user account at specified resolution (default is 1920x1080)
  • adding a firewall rule to open RDP port 3389
  • configuring auto-logon to login as rdp_local on reboot

Note that auto-logon requires a username and password and that the password is stored unencrypted under windows registry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.

Tested on Amazon Windows Server 2012 R2 AMI.

Requirements

  • Chef 11.6+ (registry_key resource)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2+ (due to usage of window_home)

Platforms

  • Windows

Dependencies

  • windows_autologin
  • windows_home

Usage

Include default recipe in run list or in another cookbook to set the screen resolution. The username and password must be set in order to user this cookbook.

  • password - Password of account to remote login as (required).
  • width - Display width in pixels. Defaults to 1920.
  • height - Display height in pixels. Defaults to 1080.
  • target - Identifies the computer or domain name that username and password account will be associated with for remote login. Defaults to localhost.
  • rdp_autologin - Logon as RDP user automatically on reboot. Defaults to true. Note that the password is stored unencrypted under windows registry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.
  • rdp_username - RDP username. Defaults to rdp_local.
  • rdp_password - RDP password. Defaults to password of account to remote login as, if nil.
