Is there a setting that only allows the Administrator only one log on at a time? Can this be turned of to allow concurrent logins?

    Windows does not provide this functionality out of the box.

    MS are beta testing LimitLogon for the next resource kit, which will do what you want.

    Courtesy of LA Robinson:

    Cconnect is an old reskit utility that prevents multiple logons with the same account.

    There is an old kludge to limit concurrent logins by scripting a drive mapping for the user to a home directory to which you have limited concurrent usage to one person, and disallowing login if that drive cannot be mapped. That may also be an option for you.

    No, I think I may have worded my question wrong. It seems that I can only login as adminstrator on one pc at a time. I want to be able to have muliple admin logins.
