Dear All,

Is there a way to restrict a computer to login by one user only? I mean, for computer-x, I need user-x to be apple to login using this computer, so user-y or any other user will not be apple to login using this computer.

i have windows 2008 R2 active directory.

Thanks

You can use the "allow logon locally setting"  Just set it to user-x (and also admins should be allowed)  More on the setting here:   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc756809(WS.10).aspx

Thanks

Mike is right. Domain users also are logging in locally on domain machines.

Try his suggestion.
