LimitLogin utilityYou can also use the LimitLogin utility to limit concurrent user logins in an Active Directory domain in a Windows Server 2003, a Windows 2000, or a Windows NT 4.0 environment. The LimitLogin utility keeps track of all logon information in Active Directory domains.
The LimitLogin utility has the following capabilities:
- It can limit the number of logins for each user from any computer in the domain. This includes terminal server sessions.
- It can display the logon information about any user in the domain according to specific criteria. For example, you can use the LimitLogin utility to display all logon sessions to a specific client computer or to a specific domain controller. Additionally, you can use the utility to display all computers to which a certain user is currently logged on.
- It is easy to manage and to configure because it can integrate into the Active Directory Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins.
- It can remotely delete and log off user sessions from the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in.
- It can generate logon information reports in either a comma-separated values (CSV) format or an XML format.
