is there a way to setup a single sign on with AD on windows 2008?  

What i am trying to do is to limit the # of same sessions on AD.  for example, user 1 logs into  computer 1, then logs on to computer 2,  he should be logged off of computer 1.  

The server is also running roaming profiles

i appreciate the help :)

    I dont believe thats possible. Do you mean TS sessions? I only see setting idle time limits.

    i wish it were TS sessions :)  that would have made things a lot easier

    Works like a charm!  thank you so much....i also downloaded a program called WinOff to manage users sessions and force a log off at a  specific time, set session limits, and log of users after 15 mins of inactivity.
