Windows Server 2012

Dear All,

Here in my organization users roaming profiles has been configured. Users can login to other computers without any issues even their profiles also working fine.
 
I want when the users logs on to different computers  the previous computer in which they are already logged in  it should be logged off automatically.

We are using Windows Server 2012 Standard 64bit

How can i do this setting.

Regards,

JCT

There is no direct solution for this requirement as it is designed Domain users can login to any computer where they have access.

But you can write a script to log the details of the computer which the user logged in. Keep that file in Sysvol or some location where login script can access. While user login to another computer this login script need to verify the log file and execute another command to logoff the previous machine. But this will slow down your login process and is not a standard method.


There is a tool named LimitLogin which have the functionality to restrict domain logon based on the limited number of concurrent logon sessions by an account (user login quota). In your scenarios, the quota will be the total logon time in a day.

I agree - in fact, this is one of the reasons I DO NOT recommend roaming profiles.  Redirect the folders instead.  Much safer and it won't matter as much.

Even if you redirect , user can modify files in the server from the previous computer where the user logged in - right ?

Hi,

So there is no option for automatic logoff when the same user login to another computer.
will he gets the message that in another computer same user is logged in . logoff there & he can login from here.

There is no message or anything else.  Roaming profiles are potentially dangerous for this reason.  Redirected folders are MUCH safer.

Hi,

I don't want the users to logged on to all the computers. For security reasons its not safe.

thats why i asked whether any settings is there for automatic log off

If users have designated computers and if you dont want other users to login to unassigned computers you can set this permission via group policy

Basically restrict access for Allow logon locally, by removing authenticated users and add the group or user you want login.

Make sure admins have sufficent rights.

But if you have more coomputers its is difficult.
