Manage Sessions and Open Files
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
When a user accesses a folder or file stored on your server over the network, a session is opened for that user. Each folder or file accessed during a session can be monitored and managed separately.
With Share and Storage Management, you can determine which network users are currently accessing folders or files on your server, and disconnect a user if necessary. You can also close specific folders or files that are being accessed by a network user, without closing other files accessed by that same user.
|Users may lose data if they are disconnected without warning. When possible, notify users before disconnecting them, or before closing a folder or file.|
Membership in Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete these procedures. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477.To view and close open sessions
