I have several users 'share' their login IDs and passwords despite repeated warnings. I would like a script or free or very low cost method to limit users to a single login.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There is no AD tool which can limit users to logging into a single machine at a time on the domain.

However you can limit the physical machines which users can log into within AD. Edit the offending users account, and go to the Account tab. Click the “Log On To…” button. This will allow you to edit a list of what machines the user can log on to.

    Yes - I know about limiting to particular device but we have some traveling users and some administrative assts. that tend to bounce around depending on need so that doesn't work in our environment. I was hoping that someone had written a script or a little utility or something that they'd be willing to share.
