Is there any reason you can't terminate QINTER (or whatever your
interactive susbsystem is called) while you are promoting objects to
production ?

Alternatively you could write a program that gave you the details of active
screen sessions and ended them before your promotion begins, however people
(I presume) could still sign on and foul up the promotion.

Just a thought on the "simple way" to achieve what you want.

Cheers
