Restrict users to a single logon to the domain


How do I restrict users in a domain, so they can logon to the domain, but only on one workstation at a time, so they can not logon at another whilst already logged on?

I hope the above made sense. Essentially a single logon per account at any time.

At this point, Microsoft is developing a tool called LimitLogon for a future resource kit release for Windows Server 2003.  The tool is meant to do just what you are requesting.  This tool is in beta testing now; if you are interested in signing up to help test the beta go to and when prompted for a guest ID, use LLOGIN.  Then fill in the nomination form (Survey link at left).

I am glad to see MS stepping up and doing something about this.  Seems like it shouldn't be that difficult.
Should have been done long ago. :-)
