We have two web servers on server 2003, each has an app 1 production and the other test, have active directory security groups for different access to different parts of the app. I want to block one domain user from accessing the test web server...no login, unc, or remote but do not want to change something that will keep them from working otherwise...

Edit the web.config file on the test server:
<authorization>
        <deny users=”TheBadUser”/>
</authorization>

In the root folder of your web site, usually C:\inetpub\wwwroot there will be a file in there called web.config. Edit that file and look for the <authorization> section and add <deny users="TheUserName"> setting.
