Can somebody tell me how to send an administrative alert to everyone connected to a certain server that the server will be offline in a couple of minutes?

Also, what can I do to ensure that nobody logs on to it once I have everyone disconnected?
Thanks.

To send, you would use the "net send" command where the syntax is
"net send computername (or username) message"

You could write a little batch file to send it to all the computers on your network simultaneously.

You can also send a message through Server Manager. Highlight the server and click computer and send message. To keep people from logging in stop the server service and the workstation service. The Server service not running will disallow logins and the workstation service will disallow people to conect via network neighborhood...

You can use the net send command to send to all by using the /domain or /users and then just stop the server service and nobody can login.

There is no easy way to do the net send. You can grab a list of connected users by opening Server Manager and looking at "In Use" for users names or computers, as you can net send to both. As far as preventing logging back in, the preferred method is to stop the "Netlogon" service. Stopping the server and/or workstation services may yield the same result, but may complicate other matters. Netlogon will prevent any further logons and authentication to that server, but you may have to close open connections just to make sure everyone is off.
