To view active users and kill them all

HI..
 
  How to do this in Win 2000 Server

  1) view currently conneted users (like $w in Unix)
  2) kill session (like kill -9 pid in Unix)


   Thanks

I do want to point out that killing all your users is against the law.. but it is a big stress reliever..

However, you can use Computer Management and under System Tools>Shared Folders>Sessions you will find a list of connected users and you can disconnect them at will.

I hope this helps.

A nice package with unix like tools is in:

http://porthos.ist.utl.pt/ftp/win98/utils/unix95.7.zip 

It has a 'kill' and a 'ps'. so you should know how to use that. But there is no 'who' command available ...

That's not what maliksl4141 was talking about. He wants to know who is on the system and he wants to know how to kill a process from the command line ...

Well that's not a problem. Use the following:

NET SESSION

net session [\\host] [/DELETE]

Without arguments, display session information for all connections to the local system. If a host is specified, information about the session between the local system and that particular system is displayed.

The /DELETE option causes the specified session (if a host is specified) or all sessions toterminate, closing all associated open local files.

This is a exerpt from "windows 2000 Commands Pocket Reference" from O'REILLY. I highly suggest purchasing this book if you come from a UNIX command-driven environment or wish to script. The ISBN is 0-596-00148-7 and is listed for only $10.00. You can purchase it from Amazon at the the following address http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0596001487/qid%3D/103-4538728-0723009
