When this command is typed i get the usual list of people log in to which database. But since we went to 4.6.2
we get more than one entry for each user. it seems that every time someone leaves a database it leaves the user as idle and logs themon again when they enter a new database so we end up withthe server having the same person logged in 10-20 times
any suggestions?

Does it show a seperate entry for the user  - depending on which database they have open, for example:-

John Smith/marketing/Company
JSmith.nsf

Fred Bloggs/marketing/Company
Names.nsf

Fred Bloggs/marketing/Company
FBloggs.nsf

Jane plain/marketing/Company
Names.nsf

Is that what we are talking about ?

Check the server log file - for "usage by user" This will tell you exactly what sessions were open on the server and for how long by each user. This will help to determine whether the server really can't detect if someone has closed a DB.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So...... it's repeating the name, but not the DB that is open. This is quite important. You must check the log file and see if it really does think that person has many simultaneous connections. I suspect that he will not.

Does this happen for EVERY user all the time, for instance, I see by your example that Adrian Hopkins is the only one repeated here, does it happen to anyone / everyone else ?

Normally it is only Adrian Hopkins but it has been others

and no the log file suggests that he is logged in once but times do overlap maybe this is why?

We have an NT4.0 (service pack 3)(thin ethernet) network with a novell server also

I also asked this question of Notes support.  The answer (or at least their answer) was that this is normal.  One database access can cause multiple user sessions.  They are freed up as needed, or you can set a Notes.ini variable to drop them at a specified interval.  The variables were server_maxsessions(for the maximum number) and server_session_timeout (for when to drop a session).  I was told only to be concerned with server.sessions.dropped, which indicates dropping an active session, and is an indication of an overloaded server.
