Logon Hours for Groups

I'm running AD and was wondering if you can limit Logon Hours for a group of people.  Yes I know you can do it user by user but that's just way too tedious.  Are there any GPO settings that would do the trick?  Or maybe a script?

1. In the User Manager window, double-click a user account that requires logon hour restrictions (refer to the ?User Accounts Planning Worksheet?).

2. In the User Properties dialog box, click Hours.
By default, all hours on all days are allowed. This is represented by a filled box for every hour of every day. A filled box indicates that the user is allowed to log on during that hour. An empty box indicates that the user cannot log on.

3. Position the mouse pointer on the rectangle on the day and hour that you want to disallow access. Press the mouse button, and drag the pointer through the last hour that you want to disallow. The area that you want to disallow should now be shaded.

4. Click Disallow. The area will still be shaded, but the line indicating hours of access should be gone.
For more information about using the Logon Hours dialog box, click Help.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all of the times that you want the user to be disallowed.

6. Click OK to return to the User Properties dialog box.

7. Click OK to return to the User Manager window.

8. Restrict logon hours for any other users who only need to log on during specified times.

To test logon hours
1. Log off and then attempt to log on as the user account that you created for the sales representative.

2. If prompted, change the password to student.
Remember, passwords are case-sensitive.
Were you able to successfully log on? Why or why not?

3. Log off and then attempt to log on as the user who is restricted to logging on during night time hours.

4. If prompted, change the password to student.
Were you able to successfully log on? Why or why not?

The questioner apparently edited the original question, as the last three sentences did not appear in the original question.

In short, this can be done by using the noted procedures and then creating a GPO from the individual setting as created from the steps noted above. Apply the GPO to those present in the student group.
