Hi,

This is my first post here so I hope it's in the most appropriate area.

I was hoping that someone could answer this question for me.

I'm working on an NT4.0 domain controller and I need to know how to add more than eight workstations to a user account in the "Logon To" dialog.

As deault you can only assign a user account to eight workstations. I'm sure there must be a tweak for this, and most probably in the registry.

Basically I need to create an account that allows my admin guys to administer workstations but not have access to the domain controller with that account. Therefore I am taking the course of allowing them to logon to specific workstations and servers only and I need a lot more than eight!

Any dudes/dudettes out there that have any ideas?

Thanks

So you can't create more than 8 local accounts on the workstations that have admin rights? I haven't run into this one before.

No. Maybe I didn't explain properly.

I have 1 account (for the admin guys) that I want to give access to about 25 systems. They need to have domain admin rights but I don't want them to be able to logon to the domain controllers themselves.

I hope this is a bit more clear.

I think you can change the option that I want when you install NT4.0. But I need to know how to change it now without rebuilding the server.

I am intending to migrate to W2K domain controllers soon but needed to solve this problem in the mean time.


Thanks very much
