  • About Sessions by using VMware infrastructure.

    Hi, everyone.

    I have a big and importat question that i have to find soultion quickly.
    We got in our company VMware infrastructure working
    with Windows server 2008 R2 ent.
    we have 500 servers online And Users from our company are connect to that Servers from theirs computers they got with win7 ent now they forgot to logout from the sessions on the VM's.
    now that problem is when i open my eyes on the morning I got phone called that say
    hey....... my Accout has lockedup.. can you please unlock? and i unlock from AD.


    So how Can I make that happen.. when the user has connect to the server and forgot to logout then the name of him to be written TXT.
    or another way to send him message "hey you have to logout from VM number1"
    because we cannot disconnect every user bacause they have documents are opened.

    so if someone have a soultion thats may be happiness for all the company.

    Thanks alot.

    the solution is to enforce session timeouts, to force people to log off.
    It's a human issue, not a technical issue. They need to learn to save documents and log off, otherwise they lose their work.

        What Virtual Desktop solution are you using? At least I assume you are using one
        But I agree with TehCamel. It's more a human issue.

          I got Virtual machines runnning winserver2008R2 ent
          also i got clients working on win7 ent

          they all the time forgot to logoff from the servers...
          and they try to connect to the win7 client in the morning and they locked bcause they are still connected.
          and i got the same problem if they need to change the password and the ballons of "you're password will be expired after 10 days" i want to to give them the way to change but they cant change. but they are connected to some of VM.
          i want to pass .... how can i do that...?

            you n eed to use a software package that is capable of load balancing the client connections, realising they are already connected to a guest machine and reconnecting them to that.

            Kind of the way a Citrix or Terminal Services Session Manager would do.

              Re: About Sessions by using VMware infrastructure.

              Are you using VMware View for your connections or is it a plain old terminal Server that is running as a VM on VMware software??

                  So its a terminal server issue then rather than a VMware issue??

                      Re: About Sessions by using VMware infrastructure.

                      you need a software package that will balance/manage your REmote Desktop sessions.

                      I don't know how many times people can tell you this.

                      you need a software package that's going to see that UserX was previously logged on to DesktopQ and reconnect them to that, rather than a new one.

                        Its a terminal server problem not a VMware problem so moving to the Terminal Server forum.

                        See tehcamel's answer for further help.

                          Hi,

                          You can use SCOM 2012 SP1 or Query user command line etc. to build a custom alert.
