Hi Guys,

I have Windows 2003 Terminal Server, users connecting through thin client to this server. Our 2nd shift finishes at 2:00am and I want all users to be logged off from the server. Most of the user disconnect their session inplace of logging off.

What I need is to logoff all active users other than "Administrator" at 2:00am.

I m aware of to set idle session & disconnected session time limits and don't want to use that approach as the users complain about termination of their sessions

Thanks for your help

Gill.
