Restrict user logon one computer on the domain

Q: Restrict user logon one computer on the domain

I have one computer with Windows7 that I need to restrict user logon to just two domain users. Since it is for only one domain computer, is there a way to restrict the user logon locally on that computer rather than through AD?
Thank you.

Preferred Solution: Restrict user logon one computer on the domain

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, logging on to SBS 2008. This only affects 1 user (me!) on 1 computer. I can logon to the same PC as another domain user, logs in within a 2 seconds. I can logon to another machine that I use a lot, instant.
Very little in startup, pretty sure that nothing starts for this user that doesn't start for other users.
So it looks like it's my user profile, rather than DNS, blank screen background or domain policy loading slowly.
I know I can probably solve this by deleting my local profile, but that would mean setting up all my applications again.
Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks

A:Windows 7 slow logon to domain - only one user, one computer

You may check Event Log and see if there is any error messages. If no errors are found, you can only recreate your user profile. If you do not want to lose the program data, you may try to back up the AppData folder before deleting the problematic profile,
and then replace the same folder of the new created profile with it.Please remember to click ?Mark as Answer? on the post that helps you, and to click ?Unmark as Answer? if a marked post does not actually answer your question. This can be beneficial to other community members reading the thread. ?

Sure, you can set it locally.
On your WIndows 7 Pro, run gpedit.msc
Configure local policy as described in step 7.
Configure Computer / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / User Rights Assignment / Allow Log on Locally. Configure this setting so that only users who should log on locally are listed.

Hi Guys,
Have you experienced when unable to logged on to windows, you got a message "Incorrect password" although your were really sure your password is right?
Now it on my face. If the LAN cable was plugged out, It was succesfully logon, plugin the LAN Cable then restart the computer, after that I was successfully logon without LAN Cable. 
I would apreciate if there are anyone who could share and help to resolve this issue..
good luck guys

I have the same issue the other user mentions. I can log on as a domain admin, but not as a domain user. There are only 4 profiles in the registry, with no .bak extensions:

1 is the default user
2 is the localservice account
3 is the networkservice account
4 is the local "Administrator" account

I was assuming the problem was with the default user, so I followed the article previously mentioned, and changed the RefCount from "1" to "0", and the State was already set to "0". I am still unable to log in with any domain account except for domain administrators.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks!

A:The user profile service failed the logon - on Domain

Welcome TVbowman to the windows 7 forums.

What is the server that your trying to log into ? windows server 2008r2 or 2003 or what?
Also, are you trying to login to the console or rdp or just map a drive?
Also, is the regular user allowed to login via the security configuration of the server and AD?

Windows 2003 server local policy keeps loosing the users that I set so that it can be browsed accross the workgroup. I can browse the server from the other pcs in the workgroup only for a few minutes until the policy looses the users all by itself. I cannot find anything that can explain what's going on. BTW - I can browse the other computers from the server with no problem. The local policy on the other computers don't change themselves. TY

Hi All,

No concept of domain all are in workgroup mode. All user accounts are with local admin privilege, any suggestion how to restrict the user from full admin rights. I had tried using power users but some IE applications (Oracle / Java Applet) does not function properly where it installs Jinitator. Is their any possibility of modifying the Local security policy and restrict the user from FULL access and limited to their applications.
Waiting for a positive response.

Default gateway:

what is the problem, is it because the APIPA is a class B and the DNS is a class A. Does the APIPA cause the DNS to not work?
 

A:A user's computer is unable to access their domain.

Can they ping the DNS server? The gateway is not defined. Where is the DNS in relation to the network? What type of network connection? Can they get to the internet? More info please.

Is there a way for me to restrict domain account user from accessing the computer (PC1) if they are disconnected from server?
Hope my explanation make sense to you guyz.

A:Prevening domain user from accessing Computer

Lots to be considered. Joining a domain is intended to give the company admin configuration control of all the company users.
This is normal, expected and even proper for the company to do this.




restrict domain account userClick to expand...

hmm; only the company admin should be able to do this and almost always it is done using some scripts, NOT by loggin into your PC. So - - who is accessing your PC remotely, the admin - - how do you know this occurs?

PCs joined to a domain usually get a replacement for PC Login - - the network form and that creates a link to the domain controller.

We have a domain user that freezes up whenever he is in the middle of something. There doesn't seem to be a pattern as far as what he is doing when this happens. He has tried switched to several different computers and it does the exact same thing, while other users have no problems on any of these computers. Any suggestions? We use Windows 7 Professional and Server 2008 R2.

A:Domain user is freezing up no matter what computer he is on.

In Active Directory on Server compare this user with other users. Are they a part of any Groups, or Objects that are different? Does the user have a Roaming Profile? (eg) they have the same profile on whatever computer they use, Email, My Documents etc?
Do they have mapped network drives that are no longer active? Right click on My Computer and choose Disconnect Network Drive, see if the path of the drive is current or not. If not, disconnect it.

When we joined the pc back in the domain the computer made a new profile.
Unfortunaly the user did save some documents on his dekstop in the old profile.
Is there a possibilty to recover the documents.

From Microsoft:
What is a guest account?

A guest account is an account for users who don't have a permanent account on your computer or domain. It allows people to use your computer without having access to your personal files. People using the guest account can't install software or hardware, change settings, or create a password.

You have to turn on the guest account before it can be used.

I have a computer that I do not want any other user to be able to login into the computer. We created a user login with limited access, but if someone else logs in with their username, then the system will be able to access the internet and we want to limit the amount of access. If I can figure a way to make sure only a few logins can work on this machine, then I can prevent others from using their logins and access the internet.

A:Restrict sites per user

If they are kids and have a Windows Live ID (Xbox Live, Hotmail, Zune, accounts) you can set up Windows Live Family Safety 2011 for free. There you can say which sites are allowed or not.

I know Norton as something like this as well called Norton Online Family (There is a free version)

I have only used the Windows Live Family Safety and that was I think.. three years ago?? and during that I know you could set it up per user account. I think Norton would do the same thing.

You could also if you have Windows 7 Professional or higher is allow only a lists of sites that are allowed by Group Policy without software.

Hope this Helps

A:restrict user's access to internet

Hi finlay,

as you have XP Pro, the best way would be to log onto that users profile and then enter the Group Policy editor:

- Start -> Run -> type:
gpedit.msc
- Click OK
- Expand:
User Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer Maintenance -> Connection
- In the right hand window, double click 'Proxy Settings' and then check 'Enable proxy settings' that will open the 'Address of proxy' box. Type in 127.0.0.1 as the address and then click OK
- Now expand:
User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer
- In the right hand window, double click 'Disable changing connnection settings' then check 'Enabled' and then click Apply then OK
- Close the Group Policy editor and test it out :)

All access should be met with a 'Cannot find server' error message and the user will not be able to change the proxy settings to allow access.

Hope that helps :)

Of course. But anyone part of the Administrators group can just take ownership and alter the permissions. Thus you shouldn't give people administrative power unless its absolutely necessary.

Most secure, use pgp and encrypt.
or you can make him a member of a group that cant even view the other partitions.

Hello Yildizabdullah, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could add their user name to the permissions of the directory, and check "Deny" "Full Control" to prevent them from being able to open the directory.

Be careful though. If you deny a directory, it will also prevent them from being able to open the subfolders in that directory.

So my question is, after pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del...how do I dictate to Windows that the preferred used is "HisDomainAccount" on our company domain, as opposed to the local admin account?

If I'm not being clear, please let me know and I will try to explain a little better.


The above is a bit confusing. Is this computer joined to a work domain or is it not?

If this is a domain computer, the user will have to use the classic log on screen (Ctrl+Alt+Delete), not the Welcome Screen. If he wants to switch to logging in to the Local computer account and not the domain, he'll have to "Switch User" then log in with the format of Computername\User Name

hi :

User A will transfer from office 1 to office 2 next week.

In the AD, is it possible to transfer the user A from one domain to another domain.

1. Or would it be better to delete the user in domain 1 and create a new user in domain 2 with the same user ID ?

2. And what type of administrator in AD can perform this type of task.

Thanks

I know you can lock down an AD account user. Lockdown specific machine on to a user domain a login to log into a specific machine but can you lock down a machine to only accept certain user logins We have some mission critical machines that only have the specific rights with certain ID s but the users keep insiting on logging onto them Lockdown user login on a domain machine to a specific user. as their own ID thus making the app not work properly and the machine go whacky I want to set it up to deny logins other than using the specified ID s they have been given already and not their own user accounts Is there any way to do this other than limiting EVERY user account since I only need this limit on like PC s per site I have Thanks for any help yes I know about runas types of solutions I really would like to keep these Lockdown user login on a domain machine to a specific user. PC s as clean as we can and not have other user profiles on them at all TIA nbsp

A:Lockdown user login on a domain machine to a specific user.

So I would assume these computers are attached to the domain, so their domain logins allow them to login to the computer.

Couldn't you use a combination of the local policies
Deny logon locally
Logon Locally

Both of them allow you to add a user or group to those local policy. I would think that if you deny the everyone group in the domain then set the users who are allowed to login in the other policy, that might work. I am not sure though. I would have to test it.

I was wondering if its possible to stop using the 'slash' style logon, logoff and lock workstations screens when connected to a corporate domain, in similar style to how NT and W2K worked.

If I recall correctly, in XP if its a member of the domain it reverts to this method and does away with the 'Welcome Screen' as its called.

thanks, Mark

Hello,

1 NT4 WKS
1 NT4 server

The problem is when my user logs on as a domain user he cant run some apps, But when he logs on as an administrator it works fine. I made him an administrator on the local PC with the same domain user name and it still wont work. What should I try next?
Windows 2000 profile transfer

Sometimes when I copy a profile from one user dir to another, using system propertys it copys with no problem. When I log out and log back in I get this repated explorer error and it wont stop until I reboot or log out. (If I can do it quick enoughf) The old profle was used as a local. The new profile is a domain profile. Do i need to do any thing to the server?

Thanks
 

A:Domain Logon

Which apps won't work? If they were installed under the admin account, they may not work for users. Some apps need to be "re-installed" for each user profile (to load some registry settings in the current user key).

As to the profiles, did you copy a local profile to the server and use it as is for a roaming profile? I have not tried that, but I suspect that the local profile may have used a variable such as "localhost%" or some such that couldn't be translated properly in a roaming profile. Just a guess on that one. Hope it helps, or someone more familiar with profiles corrects me.

If your newly created accounts can't log on, then it is time to check for something else.

In case there is hard drive corruption, I would check the hard drive. Right click on Drive C and choose Properties, > Tools tab > Check Now. The machine will need to reboot for the check to begin. See if the check reports of any problems.

A:Slow logon when not on domain

Does it still take longer to start at home if you are booting up, instead of coming out of hibernation? When you put your computer in hibernation, it saves all active states to a temporary file, then powers down without "shutting down". Part of the active state that it automatically resumes when coming out of hibernation, is the network connections as they were at the other location. Computers can sometimes be easily confused, and this may be the case for your laptop.

Two things about this situation that I generally recommend to people:

1) Shut down the computer instead of hibernate. Most people don't shutdown or reboot enough, especially with laptops. Reboots often fix many problems or temporary foibles that come up in Windows.

2) If you don't have a Windows password, create one. Then when you boot your computer, let the computer have a minute or so on the password screen while it loads stuff in the background and makes network connections, before you type in the password.

Every version of Windows I've worked on has benefited from their owners following these two guidelines. I can't speak to their necessity for Windows 7 yet, since I've only worked on one Windows 7 computer so far.

Due to a disk crash, I had to install a new 80GB Hitachi hard drive in my 400 MHz Pentium II with 384MB ram. I installed XP home and upgraded to XP Pro. The install seemed to go fine. I had two users defined in XP home (with no passwords set). I did the XP Pro upgrade and set the Administrator password. I also installed Norton Internet Security 2005. After shutting down and logging back on the two users I had setup in XP home were asking for passwords and if I just hit enter I got the following message:
The system cannot log you on due to the following error:

In the right-hand pane double click the policy:

If you have the Home Premium version, you can set this policy using the registry.

*Make sure you back up the Key before making any changes.*

Open Regedit and navigate to the following location.

In the right side pane, look for the Value dontdisplaylastusername. Double click this value and change the Value Data to 1.

If this value is not present, right click and select New/DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Should a user make a typo and login fails, the machine reverts over to Login to: localmachine name, which of course the user doesnt notice and login to network fails again resulting in calls.
