is there a way to prevent domain accounts from showing up on all computers - win 2003
Posted on 2009-12-16
Hello gang and as always thanks for the time and expertise.
My enviornment is a windows shop: clients have windows xp sp3 and servers are primarily windows server 2003 with some server 2008. the FSMO role holder is windows server 2003.
Let me try and be more clear with my question and maybe I'm being an idiot. We have a single domain with multiple sites. I've noticed that on pcs in this domain, domain accounts show up on computers in documents and settings, and I know for a fact those users have never logged onto those accounts. Why do these accounts propogate to computers that they've never logged onto and is there a way to stop that. In other words, John Doe logs onto his computer but his account shows up on 30 computers. Is this good or bad or indifferent and can I stop this. Thanks guys. Your help is always much appreciated.
