Q

How do I prevent users in an Active Directory domain from logging on to multiple clients at once?

Expert Laura E. Hunter explains how to use of the "LimitLogon" utility in Active Directory to prevent it from logging on to multiple clients at once.

My problem is, I created users in a domain that can log on to any client, however, I want to prevent them from logging on to multiple clients at once. Can you help?

In Windows Server 2003, you can implement the LimitLogon utility to help ensure that a user will only be able to log onto the network from a single station at any time. You can download this tool from Microsoft here.
