I get that, you want to tell everyone who is currently logged in that you will be restarting the server in 30 minutes, but what about the person who logs in 10 minutes later? With NetSend or MSG, they wouldn't get any notification of the impending restart.

Sorry to drag up this old thread, but I've just started messing with msg.exe and I can't make it send to all sessions of users if they are logged on to more than 1 computer. I don't intend to use this very often, but we just want something we could send out to logged on users in case of any issues we have (such as print server down). If I try and send it to a user logged on more than once it only sends to one machine. Is it possible to send it to all computers a user is logged onto?

maybe custom wallpaper on the network share and change it depending on room login. Then have some wallpapers setup with the issues? They'll only see when logging in though..

We used to use a pop up when logging in which provided up to date information which was largely ignored. We just want something that can be sent to logged on users if we find we have an issue. So if there is a print server issue we can send a message out to stop people trying to print and getting frustrated.

I posted a piece of software that will do this in the edu notification forum.
What you need to do is have a scheduled task that runs the client every x minutes, then just place the all message and it will be delivered either at logon or within the time frame.
