Windows 2000 Server - Restrict logon to one session per user.

We have a domain server running Windows 2000 Server.  We need to restrict 3 separate users to only be able to logon once to the server.  Does anyone know of a simple way to set that up?  Group Policy currently is set that a single user can log on multiple times onto the domain, and I think that is by default.

You need a seperate utility to restrict concurrent logons to Active Directory.

There's a white paper from the SANS Institute that addresses this issue.  They offer some good advice on limiting multiple concurrent user login:

users shouldn't be logging into the server at all.  Thier accounts should be restricted from doing so.
