Q

How to restrict users to certain workstations

I would like to restrict the use of some of the workstations running XP Pro so that only the staff folder in Active Directory can log on to them and not all users running from Win2K Server. What is the easiest way to do this?
I'm not sure what you are asking here. Users should not be logging on from servers but rather from their desktop machines. There is no staff folder in Active Directory, and the Active Directory does not log on to workstations. Are you asking how to restrict users to specific workstations? You can do that by following these steps:

1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers and navigate to the users account. Double-click on it. 2. Select the

Account property page. 3. Click the Log On button. 4. Enter the names of the workstations that the user should be allowed to log on from.
