Ristricted logging onto server when server is off

Good morning Dear,

Thanks for attempting my problems. I think I had not made my point clear.

I am working for the company where there are 41 computers connected in a network

Server (Windows server Standard 2003 R2 English installed)
Client (XP installed)

I want to stop misused of client machine after working hours. For which I have followed the following process.

I have created 40 different users and are restricted for specific IP address so that only single user can login onto that particular machine. Password used while logging onto Domain for all 40 users are the same and known by everybody while password used for logging onto that machine is different and known by me only.

My server is ON only for working hours (9.00am to 7.00pm) and rest of the time it is off.
Also the client machine gets logoff automatically after 7.00pm if they are ON this setting is done on the server (I have restricted the time and Sunday i.e. logging is possible on Monday to Saturday from 9.00am to 7.00pm). Now I want to stop the client starting their machine after working hours when server is off.

Now if server / network switch is off or network wire is removed from that client machine then that machine can login to domain using user name and password given for then.

I want to have settings on client machine so that client machine is not able to login to domain when server / network is off.

I hope I have made my statement clear

Pls help waiting for the reply

Hi
Thanks for the background info, this makes it easier for me to see what you need.
You need to disable your guest account if you havnt already done so.
The user is logging on with a cached version of the logon information, this is useful for when the server goes down but not in your case as you need to prevent this.
Another worrying aspect is that you allow all your users to log on using the same password. Very bad from a security aspect anyhow. It is better to change at least every 30 days. If they moan they will get used to it soon enough.
Go into group policy again and computer configuration>windows settings>security settings>local policies>security options and look for interactive logon:number of previous logons to cache - set this to 0. If the domain controller is not available and the logon info is not cached they cannot logon to domain.
Group policy can be overruled at the client end if they have admin priviledges so you may have to set this on the client pc also. But you need to test to see if it is required there. I have not used that particular policy but it should be ok just on the server. Your users dont have admin rights do they? Anyway good luck. You can set this by applying it to an OU or domain wide but if you want to target just this one pc then maybe if you put it in its own ou and apply it just there.
You need to create new policies rather than modifying the domain one and keep each policy for specific purposes so that applying them to ou's is easier, ie internet options policy, firewall policy, working hours policy etc.
Regards
Julie

Where is poweredge 1800 display led connector


http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/19/KCS/KcsArticles/Print?he Embedded System Management (ESM) log - also called System Event Log (SEL) or hardware log - reports potential hardware problems in Dell PowerEdge servers. Sometimes, simply turning off the server and disconnecting it from the electrical outlet will remove the error message. Wait approximately 10 seconds, and then reconnect the power cable and restart the server.

Other times, you will need to clear the ESM log to remove the error message. For instance, error code SEL FULLindicates that you will need to clear the ESM log. (You will lose the server's event history.) There are different ways to clear the ESM log.

To use DSET to Clear the ESM Log
  1. Download and open the DSET utility.
  2. Click the plus (+) next to System, and then click the plus (+) next to Logs.
  3. Click ESM to highlight it.
  4. Click Clear ESM Log located in the upper-right corner of the page.
To use OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) to clear the ESM log
  1. Start OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA).
  2. Log in to OMSA by entering your username and password, and then press Enter.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Hardware.
  4. Click Clear Log located next to Options.
To use Dell IT Assistant to clear the ESM log
  1. Start IT Assistant.
  2. From the middle System Tree bar, select your server by clicking it.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Clear Log in the upper-right corner of the page.
Find your Dell PowerEdge server model in the chart below for other ways to clear the ESM log:

PowerEdge server model How to clear the ESM log 2300, 2400, 2450, 2500, 2500SC, 2550, 4300, 4350, 4400, 6300, 6350, 6400, 6450
Use the Log2Txt.exe utility to clear the ESM log:
  1. Start your server to the Log2Txt utility.
  2. When you see the ESM Log main menu appear, press 2 on your keyboard to select Clear ESM log.
  3. When the ESM Log main menu reappears, press 5on your keyboard to exit the utility.
1650, 1850, 1800, 2600, 2650, 2800, 4600, 6600, 6650, 7150, 6800, 6850, R900
Use the DRAC or ERA to clear the ESM log:
  1. Type the IP address of the Remote Access Controller (RAC) in the web browser address bar, and then press Enter.
  2. Log in to the RAC.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Hardware.
  4. Click Clear Logs located in the upper-right corner of the page.
1850, 2800, 2850, 6800, 6850
Use the program BMCCFG.exe to clear the ESM logs:
  1. Download and extract the Dell OpenManage Deployment Toolkit here.
  2. Go to x:\Dell\Toolkit\Tools, where x is your primary hard disk drive.
  3. Copy the file BMCCFG.exe to a bootable floppy disk.
  4. Start the server from the bootable floppy disk.
  5. At the command prompt, type bmcc - clearsel, and then press Enter.
    The message "Clearing SEL" will display while the log clears.
1950, 2900, 2950, DP500, DP600, NF500, NF600
Use the BMC/BIOS to clear the ESM log:
  1. To open the BMC menu, press the Control + Ekeys during POST.
  2. From the list, select System Event Log, and then press Enter.
  3. Select Clear System Event Log, and then pressEnter.

Problems with IBM Xseries 346 Server


Check Light Path Diagnostic which is located on the front side of server . It gives a clue of what's the issue . If you can't see any amber on Light Path Diagnostic , then its an indication of max logs logged on BIOS event logs. You may need to restart server > Get into Bios and clear all event logs . This would remove the information sympol from server .

Sel full 1912 error


Hello,

You will get the "Sel Full 1912 error" on your server when the system event log is full and unable to record further events. You must clear the event log before the error will cancel. Boot your system into the BIOS/CMOS, locate the system logs and select clear log, reboot your system. Once the system is back up, I would go into the admin task folder and make sure the logs are clear there as well.

Good Luck.

This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are

Logging onto server/domain


Have I got this right. You want to prevent them from logging on to a particular pc without a username and password?
If the server is off the domain is not active to validate requests for authentication.
It might help me understand what you are trying to do if you tell me why you want this computer isolated as the solution I am thinking about may not be the right one. Is it in a public area or do you want to prevent guest users or some other reason.
Look forward to your next posting.
