Is there any point in replying - are you still there ;)
If you'd stopped the ADF Installation service - maybe stopped - but not
restarted the IMA service?

Subject: [THIN] little accident

I accidentally logged off 300 users today by performing the following

1. start the automated installation on all Citrix servers of an IM package
that contains one updated tnsnames.ora file
2. then I realized that in the options of the 'Installation Manager' section
of the CMC, I had activated 'Force users to log off before installing' some
time before. So at this time all users received their fist 'you will be
logged off in 15 minutes' warning 
3. I deleted the pending installation job - no success: users received their
second warning (10 minutes left...)
4. Hoping that the job was scheduled by the IMA service on each server, I
started restarting the Independent Management Infrastructure service on all
5. No cigar: 5 minutes after their last warning all users were kicked off
the servers

Not one of my most glorious moments... Is there anything I could have done
after step 1 to avoid the massive logoff?
