Force to log off when log on hours are due

By saeidans ·
I have setup log on hours for my son on my server 2008 standard, so he can't use his computer out of the time frame he is allowed.

He simply leaves his computer logged on, and that way he can get away with that.

I have also setup the Force user to log off policy at domain level, but that dean't seem to be working at all.
I want computer log him off when the time is up for him.
Please help
Thanks

WinExit.scr

Try WinExit.scr.
Its basically a screen saver that logs off users after a specified time.

Its available in the 'Windows Resource Kit Tools'
It takes a bit of work to setup though.
Check it out and see if it can work for you.

Or: use ActiveExit to automatically log off the user

by nospam In reply to WinExit.scr

Keep in mind that winexit may not log off the user if his screen is locked.

Our software ActiveExit can log off the users automatically after a timeout you set, even if the user screen is locked.

Best of all, it's FREE for personal use:

You may want to give it a try.

Thank you for suggestion, but here is the question:
what if user is still using the computer and passed the allowed working hours on the computer, is this software going to log him off still?

There is a Group Policy for that

I believe there is a Group Policy that can enforce the logon hours and another one that can force log off when the logon hours expire.

Had a look in my Vista systems gpedit.

Logon hours are the hours, during which a logon is allowed to occur.

Then there is this other thing:
User Configuration - Administrative templates - Windows components - Windows logon options - Set action to take when logon hours expire

of course there is a GP for that, and that's what I'm looking for

By the way, there was an update to the GP clients about half a year ago.
Just in case, make sure that you've applied all GP updates to server and domain member.

The way you put it made it sound like ActiveExit was really FREE... for personal use.

Yes, FREE for personal use

My keyboard lets me type FREE in capital letters only, sorry :-)

Try changing "force user logoff" options

Instead of forcing user to logoff, see if you can set it to automatically log the user off after XX minutes inactivity. Then apply your hours rules to prevent logging back on outside accepted use hours.
