Blocking a user from logging in to 2 machines at once

Is there a way to block a user from logging in to moer then 1 workstation at a time.  

We have a doc control appliction that uses My-documents as a temo storage place for draft documents.  

Users that are jumping around machines (with roaming profiles) are having a lot of problems and I think they are logging in to the new workstation before logging out of the old one.

I think If I can block multi-login things would be better ( or atleast they won't be profile version issues)

thanks

Hi,
Untested as yet by myself. With Win2k there was a resource kit utility called Cconnect.exe that helped with this problem - it doesn't seem to be included in the Win2k3 server Res kit. Also see the link for LimitLogon
How can I prevent users from logging on more than once, without using the Cconnect.exe Resource Kit Tool?

Hi erikwhiteway,

your stuck in an awkward position as if users were confined to one machine, then yes you could block it down easily but with multiple machines i dont know of a way

why dont you scrap roaming profiles and use folder redirection? its a much better way of doing things - just a thought

I'm looking at the tool above for multi log in.

I was thinking of going to 'home directory'  that will override the 'my documents' and take them to a network drive?  I just need to think about our laptop users.  and how to migrate the existing data from the my documents in profiles.
