Q

Restricting users' accessible computers with GPO

Under an Active Directory user's properties (Account tab|Log On To settings), you can restrict what computers a user can log into. This works great, but it's not currently set for all lab users (and its a fair amount of work to set this manually). So (here's the question): How can this be set via GPO?
GPO has no provisions for this. You might, however, be able to write a VB script that buzzes through all user accounts in Active Directory and performs the work.
