Understanding users and their computers

Updated: August 21, 2008

Applies To: Windows SBS 2008

In Windows SBS 2008, users can log on to any computer on the network if they have:

  • A Windows SBS 2008 user account.

  • Permissions to access a computer.

Therefore, it is recommended that you create a user account within Windows SBS 2008 for each user who wants to access computers on the Windows SBS 2008 network.

After you create the user accounts, you can allow a user account to access multiple computers on the network, or allow multiple user accounts to access a specific computer.

For more information, see the following topics later in this document:
