Creating a user with no login rights

Trying to create a GPO to stop certain users in a group having access to login to the domain.

Domain is mixed 2008/ 2003 @ a 2003 domain level

This is what I have done so far, but its not working.

1) Created a new OU to which I have added the GPO.

2) Added a new group that I have put the external users into, adding that group to the GPO Security Filtering in the GPO Management Console

3) Then in the editor; added the same group to Deny Log On Locally and Deny Log On Through Remote Access: Computer Configuration>Policy’s>Security Settings>Local Policy’s>User Rights Assignment
 

Thanks

Where have you applied part 3? This needs to be in a policy that is applied to the RDP server not the user.

You may try to enable the following GPO in "Computers" OU

-"Deny Access to this computer from the network"
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff646935(WS.10).aspx

- GPO - Deny Logon Locally to everyone in OU  "Deny log on locally"

@demazter; Yeah I am trying to mash a few dif things I have read together. so what your saying is that I would need to move all domain machines into that OU to stop these users logging on to the domain? It will only apply to the Computers, not the users logging on to those machines (which is kinda how it was put to me)


Basically I have a SharePoint site that i want users to have access to (without having to setup FBA) So they have a limited domain account that gives them access to that site without giving them any access to log into a machine if they came into the office.

That is correct, the computer section of a group policy is applied to computers and therefore must be applied to an OU that contains computers.

Go to root OU (e.g. domain.com OU) --> Edit "Default Domain Policy" to enable "Deny logon locally",  so it will apply all Child OU.

DO NOT DO THIS!

This will prevent logon for that group for ALL computers in your network.  You should always create a new group policy, don't edit the Default Domain Policy.  And never apply to the root domain, only apply to an OU!

But the question is that... ???
"Trying to create a GPO to stop certain users in a group having access to login to the domain."
                                           --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not for ALL computers in network (domain) as he needs ?

Yes, but still, making these changes at root level is dangerous and should be avoided.

Ok clearly the computer part of a GPO covers machines on the network and users covers users... but I read in few places that this was the way the only way to do it.

So there must be another way... does anyone know?

and I agree with demazter, changing anything @ the root can be trouble, but thanks anyway :)

Liminal you can follow below given steps
1) create another Security Group and add all the machines in that group on which you want to deny login to those users.
2) Add this Security group in same GPO security filtering in which you added user's security groups.
3) link this GPO to domain so that it would be applied to all user and computer which would be part of your security groups.

Note: This group policy wouldn't be applied to any of the OU on which inheritance would be blocked.You can override inheritance by choosing enforce enable in the same GPO if require.

Hope it will resolve your problem
