    As a question for everyone, what clock is used to determine what time it is when login restrictions are used? Is it the clock on the client machines or the clock on the server or something else altogether?

    It's the standard:

    Click on the first one, hold down the Shift key, click on the last one, right click and choose properties.

    I imagine it's the server clock, but I could be wrong. Hopefully the clocks aren't that far out in any case.

    What I was thinking is that mikeymike should make sure that users cannot change the system time on the client machines.

    If they did it by more than 5 minutes they'd soon drop off the domain as the kerberos ticket would no longer be valid.

    You could just disable your dhcp server, this would stop them unless they know what range you use.

    You could do this by setting a net stop/ net start command in the windows tasks on the server.

    we have it so students cannot go in and adjust the time/date anyway.
    but another question just thought of is what if a student has left his account on and then comes back to it after the expired time will it still work?

    I would assume that by forcing logoff the user will have no alternative but to log off when they returned.

    It does not matter whether they log off normally or whether they have been logged by the GPO... when they next come to logon, IF it is in their allowed logon hours, they will be able to log on and work as usual.

    Unsaved documents are the potential problem with forced logoff.

    If they're made aware of what happens then it'll be a case of 'tough luck' I think.

    I agree... our teachers learned fast!

    I don't force the office logons, bcause:

    1. There are only 5 and if I want them off, they'll comply
    2. They logoff and shut down routinely, anyway. They're very conscious about data security which works out fine for me too!
    3. If there's a panic for any reason, the office staff are most likely to be in "out of hours" and need to carry on working without calling me in.
