Hi
How can I limit user access times in Windows 2003 Server ? we don't have active directory,I  tried Net User with Times switch but it is limited to 1 hour increment, I need to setup access times like this   : 7:45AM  To 5:15PM.
Is this possible ?

Thanks

No, logon hours feature is as name indicate limited to only handle full hour intervals like 08:00aM-5:00PM and can't be splitted up in minute intervals. What you want to do is not possibly.

Not sure offhand how to do that without being on the hour, I would think there is a registry setting to change that - will see what I can dig up.

Here's at least something you can do for now...
Create allowed logon from 7:00AM-6:00PM
Create a scheduled task to logoff every minute - can assign permissions to the task if need to share the computer with other users that do have permission after hours - this article goes into it a little bit more:

With some third scripting it might work and the config nead to be stored somewhere, but the native feature is using a 24bit binary property on the user object flagging 1 or 0 if user is allowed to logon during the specific hour.

I see a minor typo in my last post. The binary structure is 7*24bits (24 hour per day and 7 days)
