Auto Logoff Windows 2003 Terminal Server Users at Certain Time

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.

Copy the code snippet into notepad and save it as logoffsessions.cmd and create a scheduled task that execute the script at the given time.
for /F "tokens=3" %%a in ('quser^|find /v "USERNAME"^|find /v /i "administrator"') do rwinsta %%a
