Hi,

I need to create a group policy in Windows 2000 AD where only group members can use a specified workstation.
i.e. When somebody who is not member of the group can not use the specified workstation to logon to the network or logon locally.
Does anybody know how to set this policy.

Thanks, Stekker

if you are using Active Directory, in the properies for each user, on the "account" tab, you can specifiy which computers the user is allowed to logon to.  This is for the domain however.  In order to prevent users from logging on to the local computer, you will have to modify the local users and groups of that computer.  This can be found in the control panel

Hi Adam,

Thanks for your comment but we are thinking about a group policy. A group for each department. All groups are already created in the Active Directory. I  like to set the policy by groups.

Do you have any idear.

thanks,

unfortuantely, Group Policy doesn't get applied until the user successfully logs into the domain.
