Multiple users after SBS2003 Migration
Posted on 2006-05-08
I am in the process of switching an org from a peer network with a Windows 2000 Professional box running as a file-only server. Many of the workstations under this environment were running with 2 main profiles, using fast switching to allow for multiple logons, after which they could access their file share via user name and password. When the same workstation is logged onto the SBS 2003 domain, fast switching is now disabled, 'by design', as Microsoft puts it.
Q1: If USER1 has logged on, and left the area without logging out, how can USER2 get access to the PC, without the intervention of USER1 or an administrator?
Q2: If the answer to Q1 is 'not possible', is there a viable solution, via 'training' or otherwise?
Q3: Is using roaming profiles a possible solution, where USER2 is then able to logon elsewhere?
Q4: Any other tips or ideas?
