Will running "Change Logon /Disable" command kick out users logged into my TS or prevent new sessions from starting?

We are preparing to upgrade from Citrix XenApp 4.5 to 6.0 on a couple of terminal servers this weekend.  Will running the "Change Logon /Disable" command kick out users already logged into that system or just prevent new sessions from starting?  We are going to be upgrading one server at a time and I am wondering if I can run the command after five (EOB) and then just come back around nine to get rolling.  If it is going to boot people, however, I will just wait until closer to kickoff.

    There is no upgrade path from XenApp 4.5 (actually XenApp 5) to XenApp 6.  How are you doing an "upgrade"?

    Accepted Solution

    "Change Logon /Disable" command will not kick out users already logged into that system. It will just prevent new sessions to connect.
