Introduction:
TPX is a Session Manager and allows a user to have a number of sessions to different applications at the same time. While this is the purpose of a Session Manager you might want to know how to restrict the number of session a User can have.
Question:
How can I restrict the number of sessions a user can have in TPX to different applications?
Answer:
There are two System Parameters which are responsible for the number of usessions a user can have at one point in time in TPX:
  1. In the fifth panel of the SMRT titled "System Features" you can choose the value of parameter "ACCESS". If this is set to 'SINGLE' or 'PASS' each user can have only one session at a time.
  2. In case that parameter "ACCESS" is set to 'MULTIPLE' you still can influence the number of parallel sessions a user can have. This is done in parameter "Maximum Sessions" in the first panel of SMRT titled "Performance Parameters". This value restricts the number of Sessions TPX can have active. This is by default set to '00000' which means that no limit is in place. If necessary you can restrict the number of sessions to a specific number. These settings are valid for the complate TPX-region.
