    I know you can lock down an AD account to log into a specific machine but can you lock down a machine to only accept certain user logins? We have some mission critical machines that only have the specific rights with certain ID's but the users keep insiting on logging onto them as their own ID thus making the app not work properly and the machine go whacky. I want to set it up to deny logins other than using the specified ID's they have been given already (and not their own user accounts).

    Is there any way to do this other than limiting EVERY user account (since I only need this limit on like 2 PC's per site I have).

    Thanks for any help. (yes I know about runas types of solutions I really would like to keep these PC's as clean as we can and not have other user profiles on them at all).

    TIA.

    So I would assume these computers are attached to the domain, so their domain logins allow them to login to the computer.

    Couldn't you use a combination of the local policies
    Deny logon locally
    Logon Locally

    Both of them allow you to add a user or group to those local policy. I would think that if you deny the everyone group in the domain then set the users who are allowed to login in the other policy, that might work. I am not sure though. I would have to test it.

    Hrmmm sounds fasible... Yes they are on the domain. I'll have to play with this a little bit and see if I can make it work.
