I'm trying to disable remote logon for just the local administrator account on every workstation thats on our domain.  I would like to use group policy to do so.  IS there a way to accomplish this?

Thanks,

can you do that through group policy?  When I try and add administrator it asks for the local administrator of the DC.

when adding local users to GPO you have to avoid using AD to select the user so it forces the local account to be used.

Just type 'administrator' directly in the box instead of using the browse/AD search box

Start | Run | Gpedit.msc if editing the local policy or chose the appropriate policy and edit it.

2. Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | User Rights Assignment.
3. Find and double click "Deny logon through Remote Desktop Services"
4. Add the user and / or the group that you would like to dny access.
5. Click ok.
6. Either run gpupdate /force /target:computer or wait for the next policy refresh for this setting to take effect.
