  • Restrciting a user account to login only once in Domain

    We have a Windows 2000 Native Mode Domain FL.
    Is it possible to restrict a user account to only 1 login in the Domain.
    Lets say that user A logs in to Computer X. He should not be able to log on to Computer Y or Computer Z unless and until he logs off from Computer X.

    I know that we can restrict users to login to a single workstation by configuring the same in the User Properties -> Account -> Log On To Attribute.

    But is there a way to restrict concurrent logins ?

    Not natively... it's a function which Microsoft have always shunned because their whole "modus operandi" is distributed access to computing resources. I happen to think that it should be available as a group policy, to have a variable number of concurrent connections from zero to unlimited.

    Sorry it's bad news...

      Yes sure you can do that.

      I used to have a script which forces the user to log on the computer before logging on. I will search for the script and post it for sure.

      There is now a utility you can use called Limit Login

      Download it and test.
