I.S. shutdown question.


We are daily shutting down our I.S. using a java program invoking wm.server.admin:shutdown
We invoke this service with a 5 minutes grace period to allow running sessions to complete (timeout option). Unfortunately, it seems that users can continue to logon during this grace period �

Is there a way to let current processes running but disallowing new connections or new services to be launched ?

Thanks & regards.

Hi James, there is some shareware at wmusers that should help:


This will take you to wmusers shareware site and you can download shutdown programs, scripts with instructions.
