    One user account but allow it to logon to multiple machines

    Hi there,

    How do I allow one user account to be able to logon to multiple machines at the same time?

    XP Sp3 clients and Server 2008.

    Many thanks (again)

    you should be able to login to as many machines as you like - enless there is something restricting. GPO maybe?

    Are you running something like cc3/cc4 or vanilla.

    Vanilla.

    What happens if say user 'test' wants to login when user 'test' is logging off another machine? Won't the profile be locked because the account logging off is updating?

    I can log into multiple machines simultaneously and you should be able to by default

    Probly worth checking your gpo's to make sure there is nothing restricting it. But i can't see anywhere that would restrict it.

    the only place i've even seen it is on third party apps.

    You could use a mandatory profile for that user, you should'nt get any problems then
