Limit Active Directory user login to 1 session

User authentication is one of the key principals of Active Directory as a directory system. It is safe to say that when user authentication does not exist in an Active Directory environment, then there is no need to have an Active Directory in our organization.

During these years there have been so many requests from System Administrators or specialist to have a feature in Active Directory which allows administrators to select a user to login only once in a time and prevent multiple logins from a user account in Active Directory.

Fix Group Policy error 1058

Greetings again,
Sorry for not being here for a long period of time. Recently I faced a strange issue which made me to pen down an article about it. So I will share this experience in case you may encounter it in near future.
While updating group policy clients my client was receiving an error indicating that the group policy folder in SYSVOL is not accessible.
