I have a particular group of users that I only want to access one server in my domain.  I currently have 12 servers I need to deny them access to.  I'm using server 2008 for AD but have a mix of 08's and 03's.  Whats the fastest way to do this?

It depends on what you mean by "deny access".  Even if the users are members of the domain, they cannot, by default, just access anything on the network.  If you don't share a resource with them, they can't get to it.

You could control what systems they can access using the logon to settings within ADUC.

The problem is that you already have the environment and you are now trying to implement a change.

A deny on a share will take precedence over an allow rule.

Using AD user account  logon to option is the quickest.
