  • Disable logons

    I have a SBS 2003 server and I can't for the life of me see a way to disable logons.

    I am from a netware background and from the console I could issue the disable logon command.

    Is there something similar you can use on a SBS 2003 server ?

    Thanks

    How about trying a "net stop server" from a CMD box? I believe that will dump current sessions too.

    "net start server" to undo.
    Cheers,

      Thanks rvalstar ! I'll give it a try.

      Although I would like to be able to just lock people out from logging in with out disableing any functionality.

        Be careful. I'm confident it will work but unsure what side effects it may have as SBS is a highly coupled design.

            You could simply limit their login hours to something like 1/4 hour every night at 3:00am, if you want to play it safer. Done via ADUC.
            Nothing special about SBS here.
            TIA

              I prefer "NET STOP NETLOGON" to prevent domain logons; and it doesn't do anything to existing sessions either (although you won't be able to map any drives while the service is stopped - you WILL be able to use existing mapped drives - unlike the net stop server option).

              NET START NETLOGON to undo.

                Isn't this grand? That's what I love about Petri. NET STOP NETLOGON is it.

                You can do a NET SESSIONS to track whom is still connected.
