Steve,

 

I had to log into a remote client server to check, but the "logoff"
command in a script setup as a scheduled task, WILL log off the console
session so that Tsshutdn will properly shutdown the server. This is on
Win2k TS servers. 

 

And BTW - you can use the "/console" switch when connecting to RDP
sessions on win2k servers as well . . not just win2k3 servers. Open up
taskmanager when in your session, select "view" - "select colums" and
check the box for "session ID" to see that you're indeed logged in as
Session ID "0" to the servers. 

 

HTH

Yes prefer script.

I think perhaps it is a limitation. 

The 'logoff' command works with any session except the console session.

The tsshutdn usually runs during early am hours so manual will not do
the trick.

Tried a few other tools with no success yet.

Thanks

Well, you can do it manually if you set up NetMeeting, VNC or some other
remote access tool.  Unfortunately, I think you wanted to do all this
via a script and I don't know how to do that. My only suggestion is to
use one of the other shutdown tools that were mentioned. One of them
might reboot despite the locked console.

 

Not much help, huh?

        I am aware of the ability with Windows 2003 to connect to
console session from remote sessions. The Citrix boxes I am speaking of
are running on Win2k TS. Also running Citrix MF XP FR3.

        A few weeks ago I was looking for alternative ways to run
tsshutdn because every once in a while the reboot would get hung up.
After more discovery and testing what I have found is that when someone
locks the server console without logging off when the tsshutdn command
later tries to run but cannot and the server ends up becoming
unresponsive to ICA connections. Though can still logon via console.

        Is there a command or way to unlock a locked console session to
prevent what is happening without actually being at the console? Another
solution may be to prevent people being able to lock a console session
if that is possible - probably with system policies can do it.
