Prevent Logging in on multiple workstations

I would like to make it so that users on my network can not log on to the domain from more than one workstation at a time; as to prevent users from sharing their login credentials with other users.

In AD you can assign each user to his/her own workstation. You can find this under the Account tab of User Properties.

sure but turnover is way too high for that to be a managable solution. . .isn't there a GPO setting that will do this for local domain workstations the same way Terminal Services does?

You can limit them to what PC's they can log into from the Account tab in their user properties (Log On To box)
If you know exactly what PC you want them to log into then that method will work.

I think want is to prevent concurrent logins which is not natively built in, you could look into a 3rd party tool or a Microsoft tool

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/237282
Limiting a user's concurrent connections in Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, and Windows NT 4.0

I have not deployed either in production, it wouldn't work where I am though because people do switch PCs and if we did this our help desk would hate us.
Thanks

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

LimitLogin is the tool to limit simultaneous logins
Through User properties ,you can assign a particular computer,but cannot stop simultaneous logins
