  • Linux Headless Server – too many users

    Posted by Uwe Smidt on June 23, 2022 at 12:42 pm

    Dear $all,

    I have set up a Linux Headless Server (on my Synology NAS, in a Docker container), which is – after some minor and major headaches, and some help from the Omnis Team, up and running.

    As I am using my Developer license with only one user allowed, I sometimes get ‘too many users connecting too Server’ – I assume because I am starting sessions from different browsers.

    However, when I close the tabs or windows of thesde sessions, the message still prevails.

    How do I ‘kick out’ unwanted users/sessions from the headless server?

    Using http://servername:port/jschtml/osadmin.htm (the headless server’s admin interface) just brings another message ‘too many users…’

    Of course, I can restart the headless server, but this seems like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut..

    Any ideas? Thanx!

    Which version of Omnis are you using? I thought that the developer license had a 5 user number so you could test multiple connections?

    Alternatively you can kill the process from the command line with “killall omnis” – this isn’t a nice way to stop everything, but it does work!

    Thanx for your response, Paul!

    I am using 10.2, and quite honestly, I don’t know how many concurrent users my developer license allows for – I’ll check.

    But even so, there seems no way to log in to the headless server when I’m the n+1’th user, in order to kick out users as admin.

    I assume your command kills all processes, as opposed to resetting client connections. Then I’d rather restart the container with ‘docker restart <containerID>

    But instead of using a sledge hammer I was looking for a way to check & kick out client connections…
