Well, there are two things. How users find the farm to enumerate applications and how users connect to applications. If you disable logons to the server, you are effectively telling the Farm that this server is not available so do not send any new connection. You do not need to take the serve out of the published applications (which is a pain if done by hand and you have a lot of Published Apps). As far as how users find and enumerate applications, that depends on your architecture. Is ica.domain.local a virtual IP that is load balanced? Do you have multiple servers specified in ICA client connections? I have an active reboot script written in vbscript. It essentially waits until all connects are terminated/disconnected, performs weeks maintenance tasks, and reboots. The key to any active reboot scripts is you HAVE to set a session time limit. Not just idle and disconnect.

Also: If you've got users connecting directly to the servers over an ICA session, you can disable logins to that server via the CMC as well. I think this way would better prevent users from getting error messages and making phone calls... _____ From: Evan Mann [mailto:emann@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Monday, July 25, 2005 12:38 PM To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [THIN] Reboot active app server I need to reboot an active app server in my farm. It has active sessions. I don't need to do it immediately but want to do it soon. Is the best method to do this simply to disable ICA protocol so no further sessions can connect and wait until users finish their active sessions? I have app 2 servers in the farm where all apps are published, will disabling ICA on one cause them to get any type of error when they try to connect or will they simply hit the other server until I re-enable ICA connections?
