Hi list,

Is there any way to prevent users from signing on more than one session =
?

Thanks in advance

The only way I know of is through the AS400 system control values.
WRKSYSVAL to find the QLMTDEVSSN parameter and set it to 1. This will,
however, effect ALL users of the system.

Hope this helps,

Yes, in the IBM user profile. Limit session device option.

Yes, there is, it's an AS400 thang.
You may also force a user to only be able to sign onto a session of a
certain name, but this will need a bit more research for you to do. But
fairly easy.

Signon as QSECOFR, issue WRKSYSVAL and change the value for QLMTDEVSSN
(Limit Device Sessions), change it to a 1 and this will only a user to
signon to one session. This change effects everyone. BE CAREFUL.

Within the As400 user profiles you can limit the device sessions.

Limit device sessions . . . . . LMTDEVSSN *YES

The only down fall to this is it limits by device not user id.

yes, on the IBM User Profile, check out the Limit Device Sessions
parameter - set it to 1 to do as you request.

You can change the IBM system value QLMTDEVSSN to limit all users, or if
you prefer to limit only specific users, change the LIMIT DEVICE
SESSIONS parameter on their user profile to *YES.
 
You can set the parameter on a per user basis by changing the value for
LMTDEVSSN on the user profile. This parameter can be set to *no to not
limit the user or *yes (or *sysval) to limit the user to 1 session.

I think you can set this value in each individual user profile. So, you could set all users to have one session, and then set a few exceptions to have more than 1 session.

Here are a couple of links to IBM's website regarding this topic. Hope this helps.

Keep in mind this does not limit SYSREQ and a second sign-on.

In their user profile:

Limit Device Sessions - Help

Specifies whether the number of device sessions allowed for a user

is limited to 1 session. The value, *SYSVAL, specifies that the

system value, QLMTDEVSSN, determines whether the user is limited to

1 device session.

Hi, Luis:

I have worked for some very controlling employers who
got the as/400 system administrators to restrict how
many as/400 sessions users were able to open.

This is at the operating system level, though. (Some
of these as/400 shops were not running JDE).

Ask your AS/400 sys admin to make the change for you.

I don't believe its something that is controlled
within JDE, nor is it something that you can change on
the fly.

Hope this helps.

You should never (well almost never) need to sign on as QSECOFR is your
enviroment is set up correctly and the userprofiles of your admin are set up
properly as well.
If you are doing this for things this simple, please contact your BP or IBM
CE, they should have done a better job.

Just a "wild" thought, but if you can write a simple CL program to trap the
msg that appears when you sign on to a 2nd session indicating that your msg
queue is allocated to another session, you could make that the initial
program for a person when they sign on and have it automatically sign them
off if that msg appears.

Still will not prevent a user to have two sessions open.

When you limit the devices through the parameter on CHGUSRPRF, it does not
limit the user from using SYSREQ and acquiring another signon. Now ...
you can map the keyboard for the user to remove the sysreq key. But, I
think this is too much trouble. I don't know of any other way to limit a
second signon.
