Windows clients will not log off when hours expire.

By The_Fixer ·
I have a Windows 2003 domain with Win XP SP2 clients. I have set a domain policy to log the workstations off when user logon hours expire. I have not been able to get this to work. I have verified that the client is receiving the policy settings and all other restrictions are taking effect. I have done some research online with M$ and they have a hot fix for it but you have to call for technical support before they will give you the fix. Has anyone else encountered this and have a way around it?

We sticked with inactivity detection

Yes we came across this problem. We also tried features from Windows Server Resource Kit but it also failed for us and forcing termination didn't helped. We sticked to the Inactivty detection solution that comes with Desktop Authority. We set computers to shut down by end of the day each Friday when user is inactive within the defined schedule grid and it works for us. We even assigned some updates that we do on logoff each third week an all machines when users are leaving their computers.

I hope MS decides to address this. I have got the hotfix from MS but it still does not work. Thanks for the suggestion.
