View Full Version : user can only use workstation id x?
01-01-1995, 02:00 AM
Is there a way to configure a user to have the ability to sign on only to a particular workstation ID? userx = workstation x. We would like to have a single user log on remotely through client access and have a session already created that we can vary off at the times we do not want them to log on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The only way I know of is to define an initial program on the user profile, and check the workstation id in that program - hard or soft code. If you already have an initial program, create a wrapper program to do the check and then pass control to the normal initial program. Points to note: Make sure that you limit the device sessions for the user, and make sure that the attention program is as you want it - it doesn't give the user access you don't want. Hope this helps, Russell

You could change the authority on ALL of the DEVices and only authorize a user to the one that you want. This would be very, very time consuming and a maintenance nightmare, but it should work.

Why not just control them by enabling or disabling their user profile, or create a signon program for them that looks at the times and either lets them in or logs them off accordingly

To make it really easy (I likes easy) you could use the IBM supplied menu GO SECTOOLS. Option 6 allows you to activate/deactivate specific users according to a date and time. Never had to use it though. Scott
