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"?

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