Since XP is coming to it's end of life I will like to stop users accessing any XP workstation using Group Policy. All my XP workstation reside in a separate Organisational Unit (OU).

Basically, I will like to stop users accessing these XP workstations in this OU or once a computer object  is moved into this OU. Please what is the best approach in achieving this via GPO?

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,

TA

Create an Group Policy for that OU. THIS group policy will have an entry under computer configuration, windows settings, security settings, local policies, user rights assignment for "Allow logon locally". (The local GPO for XP machines has a Deny Logon Locally setting, but not an Allow Logon Locally setting. Go figure.)
4. Configure this right, adding "Administrators" and the users you want to log on to this PC. ( P.S. Do NOT configure "Deny logon locally" for everyone!! Deny overrides allow!)

Simply remove the physical machines :)
Or remove them from active directory, works, too.
