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

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

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