How do I enable automatic authentication using NTLM?

I have a Windows Server 2024 R2 domain controller that I want to automatically authenticate users when they log in.

For users who are automatically authenticated (ie. They aren't prompted for a username/password), I want to have the user's authentication credentials retrieved from Active Directory and use them to authenticate the user on their network login instead of prompting them for a username and password.

When I create an Active Directory user account, by default the account's "Set Password" checkbox is unchecked. If I set the "Set Password" checkbox to checked, the user will not be automatically authenticated.

In my search for a solution, I have come across the following article which describes how to enable automatic authentication for a specific user using NTLM authentication: However, the steps I am interested in taking are similar to the steps described in the article but using NTLM rather than Kerberos. Does anyone know how to enable automatic authentication for all domain users using NTLM? Thanks! Unfortunately, that is not supported as far as I know.

If you've got the time, I'd recommend looking at the scripts from that site. They've got a few samples, including one for setting a password for a user.
