I have a Windows 2000 server runing SQL and I need to stop a user from accessig the server.  I feel like a newbie asking this question but I really need to keep this one person out.  I explored allowing him to only logon to certain servers via his account in AD, but then I would have to list all the servers in the domain except the one I don't want him in.  He is not a member of the local admin group either, unless he is getting in on the application level via SQL only!?  Any assistance is appreciatted.  Thanks.

Hi copio,
  How about at the policy level?  setup a local computer policy to deny access to that server?
let me know if you would like more information.

How about placing Deny permissions on the hard drives of the system in question such that only that one particular user is denied access?  Right click the Drive. Select sharing and security, Select security and click ADD... Enter the users name and click Deny on Full Control.  This should block his access.

Good Luck

There is a group policy that takes away network neighborhood browsing.  So if he doesnt know how to go start, run \\servername\share, then you can slow him down that way.
