Hi,

I want to know how to prevent users from accessing multiple log in, like with one user name multiple employees are logging i want to restrict that access, and only the user should be able to access one machine at a time, is there any policy like that,

I know we can do it with the user property -- account -- Log on to, but the problem is we have 400 user which have to be mapped to each machine so to prevent this lengthy procedure i want to implement it by GPO, at least that if a user is logged in to one machine then his user name and password should not be used on any other computer .i.e. there user name should be locked once they log on to one machine,

Thanks.

We spent a long time trying to do what you want to do and finally decided on a peiece off 3rd party software

There were other ways you can do it with log on script and a databse backend etc. But none of them lived up to this solution.. The only downside is that you need to install a cliejt on the machine.. But that said the software has an automated distro utility which is very very good...
We downloaded the demo and had user logging in only once within a day.. It is not overly expensive either...

It's possibly to restrict single TS-sessions for users by using GPOs, but it's not possibly to do that for normal client logons.
The answer to your question is no for usage of native functionality, but JohnGerhardt has a couple of good ideas for workarounds.

There is no policy to restrict how many clients the user can logon to.
As already said, you can't do what you want with native functionality.
