Set Local User Logon Hours in Windows XP

How do I restrict a User’s Logon hours on my Windows XP machine?

Local and domain users can be restricted from logging on to the computer (or to the network) at specific hours or days. You can only restrict when a user can log on to the system. On a stand alone computer (one that is not a part of a domain) you cannot force a user to log off when their hours expire.

What is “Inside Microsoft Teams”?

“Inside Microsoft Teams” is a webcast series, now in Season 4 for IT pros hosted by Microsoft Product Manager, Stephen Rose. Stephen & his guests comprised of customers, partners, and real-world experts share best practices of planning, deploying, adopting, managing, and securing Teams. You can watch any episode at your convenience, find resources, blogs, reviews of accessories certified for Teams, bonus clips, and information regarding upcoming live broadcasts on our website.

Although domain administrators have an option in the Active Directory Users & Computers GUI to limit the user’s logon hours, local administrators do not have that option in the Local Users and Groups console.

In order to do that you’ll need to use the NET USER command.

Some examples would be:

net user danielp /time:S-F,08:00-18:00net user danielp /time:S-F,8am-6pmnet user danielp /time:M,4am-5pm;T,1pm-3pm;W-F,8:00-17:00net user danielp /time:all

Open a Command Prompt window.

Enter the appropriate "net user" command for the user(s) you wish to restrict access for.

Note: This command also works in Windows NT 4.0 and W2K.
