I'm looking for a command that I can execute on the pc that will end a running Client accessing connection.  I want to perform some software maintenance on the pc and want to ensure that all applications are ended before I do anything to the pc.

I seem to recall, that at one time, there was a CWB command, of some sort, that did the trick.

But I could be mistaken.

Thanks in advance for all replies.

I don't know of any CWB command to do this, but whenever I want to accomplish the same thing, I simply re-boot the PC. It works every time, and it's not that complex.

HTH,

Thanks Dave.

That DOES work.
And so does logging off and back on.

But neither are an option for me.

Any other idea would be greatly appreciated if you think of anything.

I just read the online user guide for 7.1.

I did not find any commands of any name to do that.

Sorry

Did you try the Windows option taskkill

To kill a process by ID  use : taskkill /pid 3192

or by processname : taskkill /im pcscm.exe /f
(/f is to force the killing)

Other parms see here

Thanks to the both of you for your efforts on my behalf.

Since there doesn’t appear to be a way to "force" the ending of all iSeries connectivity (from the pc), I decided to include some code in my software update script that, when run, will start the process, by logging off the currently logged on user.
I've tested this.
And if I “had” a connection to the iSeries server before logging off, forcing a log off, successfully ends that connection.

I'm logging into the remote PCs, via the Local System Account to "do" my "VooDoo".

Logging off the currently log on user (It’s gonna run (my script) at 2:00 am, so it shouldn’t be an issue for any user.

So methinks, I'm good.

Thanks once again to the both of you, for your time.
I hope to be able to repay your kindness somewhere down the road.

Hey Ray,

"Since there doesn’t appear to be a way to "force" the ending of all iSeries connectivity (from the pc)"

You probably didnt read or understood the parameters in the taskkill command,

You can build a filter to kill the programs,

so: taskkill /fi "IMAGENAME eq pcs*.exe" /f will kill the CA processes.
If you don't trust the wildcard, you put 2 kill commands in a .bat file:

taskkill /im pcscm.exe" /f
taskkill /im pcsws.exe" /f

There are more processes but you don't want to kill them, e.g. rtopcb.exe  this is datatransfer, and killing that will be bad for tou data integrity

AFAIK, the only potential way to close all such connections is to capture every connection via a netstat-like utility and work backwards to the controlling processes when the remote address is seen to match. Connections are not limited to those that iSeries Access might create, which would be the only ones that a CWB function will find.
