Has anyone found a good way within Active Directory or Group Policy in order to prevent users from logging into multiple workstations simultaneously?
As a bit of background, I currently am a System admin for a state business that has multiple sites with users that work with unassigned workstations. In order to accommodate the needs of the users we have implemented roaming profiles, and to prevent too much transfer of profile data we also redirect certain aspects of their profile. (Most notably their My Documents folder.)
Unfortunately we often have users logging into multiple workstation at a time, sometimes upwards of three or four workstations at a time, and as a result we have had some profile corruption as a result of improper logoffs/shutdowns and the like.
Right now we do not have any budget for third party tools to manage this issue, so I was hoping to find a solution within Group Policy, or a setting in a user's profile in Active Directory I could use.
