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:

in active directory users and computers, browse to each user and set concurrent logins to 1
