win2k,2k3 script command to reboot users??
Posted on 2005-05-09
we have a customer who cannot manage to make the network users logout of our application. we are redoing some parts of it and occassionally need to have all users out while we update programs or data. the wee hours of the nite when they are closed would work for this if we were onsite. however, we are accessing remotely.
their administrator knows how to lock the users out of the network between say 10pm & 4am, but doesnt know how to make sure the users are out of our application then. unless someone runs around and physically checks this.
at another site i put program on the users (winoff) that will force a reboot at a programmed time and this works fine.
it has been suggested to us that the windows network management software may have some command that can be issued to the users to do the same thing (or maybe do a logout and close all running programs).
anyone know how this could be done as a centralized operation rather than individually on each user?
