disabling an account whilst logged in

What happens in AD if you disable a users account whilst they are logged into the domain on a PC at that time? Does it log them off, or cant you diasble an account whilst someone is logged in? Just wondered from the users side what happens. Ie if I was the user logged into the domain on my PC, and you the AD admin disable my account, what happens?

Also are there any limitations on how many concurrent logins a user can have into a domain at once? i.e. could if I wanted I login to the domain on 30 PC's at a time, or does/could something in AD prevent this.

NO, User can go ahead and logon to multiple systems. If  you want to prevent this then you have to define Logon to in USer accoutn properties.

ie. go to dsa.msc--->user account--->properties--->account--->logon to --->define the computer accounts here.

After this user can only login to listed computer in logon to tab
