Am getting the dialog error as
"Only one user session is allowed.
User is already logged onto this machine.

This User must log off of this machine before you can log on."

Kindly provide any solutions for the above issue.

Hi KasthuriKM

I do agree with Jack post #6.

Your problem is on your very first post. Highlight in red.

Enterprise edition do have high priority in managing on IT computers and access.

Even i was in IT dept, the Administrator did not allow me to do any this sort of issues.
If he want me to handle, he did provided all the necessary info for me to resolve issue.

Each Administrator have its own method.

So, do refer to your Administrator on this policy.

If you are doing something as part of the IT, then the Administrator will, in the very first place, give you full access.

I had this to say:

All your posts are very much misleading.

Each post of yours have different issue, as you did not really come forward on the actual issues.
Or rather you do not want to.

Yeah thats was a policy change, tat was an ISO image extracted from the SCCM which was built by the server team. I dont know wat policy they hav changed i searched in many sites i couldnt get an info on this.
Are you need is to ask &or refer to the actual staff.

Eric, teams are aware of this and this is also getting deployed legally in the same office location with diff setup this is bit long story hope tat is not the prob here.

Pls help me with particular policy that makes this setting so i could change and get deployed for other systems

Post #9
Am trying use this image bcoz of new hardware is USB 3.0 compatible

So, what is really your problem in not having an internal staff to assist you.

I am limited with my knowledge with any kind of domain computers.
I will go back to watching.

Hi Eric & Jack,

Its much appreciable that you wanna support legally and do not wanna adhere the IT Dept.

I dint mislead the topic i wanna stick to the issue which required logics and reason that is what i have mentioned.

As I told you earlier this is very long story, will try to explain in short my company has been acquired by another, we have multiple projects with individual domains we call it ODC. The company acquired us want to use Win 10 for all the systems, the project which am supporting doesnt work with Win 10 as many applications will not function, so my team wanna stay wit Win 7 for the ODC which will be in out control. During the transition a Win 7 ISO image was provided for testing purpose that is the image which am trying to use. I or my team check with the new org for this policy change to over ride this issue.

My issue is still the same of logging which you have marked in red, the other issues i mentioned is why am sticking to the ISO which has that policy applied if not i need to wait till the SCCM for server is fixed.

Hope would be getting possible solutions for the issue.
