How to prevent a user from  logging in multiple times

atorex asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have a SLES 9 system deployed in over 700 machines with a default user account that auto starts an application, the issue we are having is that this application locks some files and we have found that users are starting a new session with the default user account and causing issues with the application as it auto starts.
I need to disable the default user from starting multiple sessions, how can I do this, what file holds this configuration?
I need to be able to change this file and deploy to all 700 and so machines.

Thanks for any help provided.
