Remotely logoff users from terminal server

Hi,

We have several terminal servers, all servers are windows 2003. I want to log off the users remotely from the terminal servers, so that the profiles are cleaning from the terminal servers. I have tried it with the query session command and then the logoff-command from the domain controller. But then I must hit a key to continue. I have also tried logoff /f, but it doesn't work.

Does anyone know the solution???

first you have to query the users that are logged on. you can use qwinsta /server:<servername>

this will show you the username and the ID of the session. Once you know the user who's logged in,
you can use logoff command that will log off the user.
type logoff <session ID>/server:<servername>

Jaynir,

If I use the logoff command I must hit a key to complete this. Here you can find my script:

query session /SERVER:PTSTEST > session.txt
for /f "skip=2 tokens=2," %%i in (session.txt) DO logoff %%i /SERVER:PTSTEST
del session.txt

I will put this script in the task manager and run it at night.
