Floating Pool, Don't Take a Session

This might not make a lot of sense, but, asking anyway.

If we have a floating pool, say 500 desktops, and 500 unique users assigned, is there a way to make it so if user1 is already logged into desktop1, that if he walks somewhere else and tries to login again, he won't steal desktop1 from the previous session?

We have generic accounts setup for a floating pool, and the accounts are assigned to terminals. To help eliminate some human error, I'd love to make it so if the pool sees the account logged in somewhere else, he'll just reject the new session's attempt to use that same account.

This can be fixed by moving to 1 account and allowing the pool to spit our multiple sessions for a single account, but, we're not there yet.

Thanks in advance.

epa80,

I hope that I understand what you are saying.  I understand that you have a bunch of terminals.  You have IDs assigned to those terminals.  You want someone to be able to move from one terminal to another and not connect to the previous virtual machine.

The only thing that I can think of is for that person1 to do a Disconnect and not a Disconnect and Log Off with account1.  You have to make sure your pool is not set to immediately log off an account once they disconnect.  You have to edit the pool to make sure it is not set.  This will keep someone from connecting to the machine and will allow a person with account1 to log onto the machine.
