Restrict User's Logon Hours and Access to Computers

For each user account you create on your network, you can set additional properties for the user by right-clicking the new user and choosing Properties from the contextual menu. This command brings up the User Properties dialog box, which has about a million tabs that you can use to set various properties for the user.

Specify logon hours

You can restrict the hours during which the user is allowed to log on to the system. Click the Logon Hours button on the Account tab of the User Properties dialog box to open the Logon Hours for [User] dialog box.

Set User's Logon Hours Restriction

Initially, the Logon Hours dialog box is set to allow the user to log on at any time of day or night. To change the hours that you want the user to have access, click a day and time or a range of days and times, select Logon Permitted or Logon Denied, and then click OK.

Restrict access to certain computers

Typically, a user can use his user account to log on to any computer that's part of the user's domain. You can restrict a user to certain computers, however, by clicking the Log On To button on the Account tab of the User Properties dialog box. This button brings up the Logon Workstations dialog box.

Restrict access to certain computers

To restrict the user to certain computers, select The Following Computers radio button. Then, for each computer you want to allow the user to log on from, enter the computer's name in the text box and click Add.
