    Limit Login and stale sessions

    Hi all, anyone have any workaround to force stale sessions closed after a set time period? if the kids do not log off properly the next time they try to log on limit login refuses logon.

    Log them off... ?
    Force user logoff after a period of inactivity
    Download Free Windows 2000 Resource Kit Tools

    I had an MSI that I pushed out, not sure where it came from, and now the staff users are logged off after 15 minutes (or something) I probably found it from Edugeek.

    That's not the OP's question. With Limitlogon, if a machine gets killed without logging out properly, and then the same user tries to get into a different machine before the original has booted again, Limitlogon still thinks the user is already active - a stale session.

    Ah, my misunderstanding, not some software we have..

    How does Limitlogon know (or not know) that users are logged on ?
    If it is running an app in the logoff script, can you force this to run ? I know a lot of the students we have like to restart the machines, rather than log off, so you could run this app during startup.

    When we used it, we told them to go back ... logon and logoff correctly. Staff are reminded to check students are logged off before leaving the suite. If this failed to sort it you have to reset the count on the server ... PITA but there is no way round it.

    I clear all the records overnight each day from a script - its not perfect - but it helps.

    I suppose you could run the script at lesson end or break & lunch time too.
