    have a look at this;en-us;q237282 and this
    both should make the work


    or limitlogon

    LimitLogin capabilities include:
    •Limiting the number of logins per user from any machine in the domain, including Terminal Server sessions.
    •Displaying the logins information of any user in the domain according to a specific criterion (e.g. all the logged-on sessions to a specific client machine or Domain Controller, or all the machines a certain user is currently logged on to).
    •Easy management and configuration by integrating to the Active Directory MMC snap-ins.
    •Ability to delete and log off user session remotely straight from the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in.
    •Generating Login information reports in CSV (Excel) and XML formats.
    Please keep in mind that this tool is Not Supported (similar to a resource kit or support tool).
    and a faq about it:


    But i heard that i can do it by gruop policy from deny intractive logon
    but i do not how ?
    i mean if i have in ad user name ” s1 ” and pass is : 123
    i want stop anther user try to logon from another computer by s1 accout when real s1 had already logon .


    Denying interactive logon will stop a user logging on completely, regardless of whether they are logged on elsewhere. With Windows 2000 & 2003 you can’t stop multiple logons out of the box. You need to add either a third party tool (such as userlock) or the microsoft offerings of limitlogon.

    EDIT: Just found this – looks a bit crude though:;en-us;260364
