    Multiple Logins

    Hi

    Just wondered if R2 had a security setting to stop users (ie students) from trying to use the same account on more than 1 PC - or did MS not bother implementing this yet again!

    Hi

    Apparently Limitlogin doesn't work with 2008 (or R2) and hasn't been updated since 2005. Oh well...I know there are other ways in which it can be done with scripting but if there is no inbuilt tool it is another problem of M$'s creation.....

    LimitLogin is not compatible with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 (and was a bunch of crap anyway...).

    You should give a look to UserLock (fully compatible with Windows Server 2008, including R2 and Windows 7), that allows IT security teams to:
    - prevent or limit simultaneous logon (same ID, same password), per user or user group
    - record all session logging and locking events in an ODBC database (Access, SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL,…) for future reference
    - monitor user sessions in realtime (who is connected, from which workstation(s), for how long…)
    - remotely lock, logoff and reset all interactive sessions
    - define working hours and/or maximum session time for protected users and disconnect users with prior warning outside of the defined timeframe(s) and/or when time is up
    - restrict user group’s network access per workstation or IP range
    - notify all users prior to gaining access to a system with a tailor-made warning message (legal disclaimer, etc.)
    - …

    More, UserLock comes with specific features especially designed for educational organizations.
