You need to create a restricted groups policy, see http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Using-Restricted-Groups.html.

Hi bhartiya,

I notice you have awarded me a 'C' grade for this question, despite not hearing from you before you awarded points. Can you please confirm why you awarded this? As per the EE grading guidelines at http:/help.jsp#hi97, a 'C' grade is typically reserved for cases where an Expert offered a vague and incomplete answer and then declines to respond to reasonable requests for additional info or clarification. Any other answer warrants at least a 'B'.

An explanation would be appreciated.

Thanks,
tigermatt
