We needed to create a user account in 2003AD that had Domain Acess. This was so the service that was running could logon to all servers. How do I disable this user from accessing AD related resources, and the user actually  using this service account to log on to servers?

You can do this through Group Policy. You can created a new domain wide policy or edit the Default Domain Policy and make the following change:

Once editing the Group Policy Object go to:

Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/User Rights Assignment/Deny logon locally

Edit the Deny logon locally field and add the user in question.

Hope this helps!
