We have a network with around 600+ users, where most of them are using
personal laptops to access the network. A lot of them are logging on their
laptops with their local accounts and then map to the network shares with
their domain user accounts. This is becomming a problem since our scripts are
not run on their laptops.
a) Is there any way that we can setup windows 2003 server to deny access to
anyone that did not log on their laptop with their domain user account?
b) Is there a way that we can prevent the logon window from popping up when
they try to access a network share while logged on locally? Have an access
denied window instead? Or maybe have the script do something that would be
checked whenever they tried to access the network?
c) Is there a way we can run our scripts, when they access the network
shares with their domain user accounts while they are logged on with their
local account on their laptop?

Any ideas would be appreciated. Unfortunately since those are their personal
laptops they have local admin accounts. Taking their local admin rights away
or denying the use of their personal laptops on our network is not an option.
If it was up to us we would have denyed the use of personal laptops and would
not have these issues.
