Terminating a logged on user

Jump to solution

Wondering what's the best way to terminate a logged on user?

I can see users logged onto a workgroup server via Enterprise Studio, but no option to end their session?

We are migrating our servers tomorrow night and want to ensure user sessions don't get in the way. We will be moving them out of hours, but there's always one...

Like NZ mentioned, Enterprise Studio is the best way to peter off your user base. Right-click your dataset, and use Utilities > Availability to do the following:

  • Broadcast message: as NZ mentioned, you can push notifications to all users logged on to CM at once. You can also set a message that will always pop for users when they log onto CM.
  • Availability types: This is your best bet for forcibly clearing out your users. Options (from memory) are:
    • Available: everyday operations, anyone can log in.
    • No new sessions: anyone logged onto CM can continue to use CM. No new connections are permitted. This is a good way to ease users out of CM before an outage window.
    • Unavailable: Dataset is considered "offline". No new sessions, and any active sessions are terminated.

Good luck with the migration! Hopefully it won't be a "migraine"-tion 🙂

Perhaps use the Availability control in the Studio to send a boradcast message to all logged in users stating all services to stop at x:x time and then use the control to stop all access at the designated time?
