Rob,

We had individual sessions for each user, some users had 3 or 4.
When we migrated to ACS, I changed to using &COMPN*= for the session id.
Session name now equals PC name, with a letter suffix for each additional one launched.
One HOD session can launch as many as needed.
QAUTOCFG must be set to 1=on.
Also had to add some wildcard names to the interactive subsystem.

Session maintenance eliminated.

Paul

And, apparently minimizing sessions is really popular on shop floor PC's where multiple users have their own 5250 sessions and are strictly forbidden to use a session that someone else is logged on to and must start their own.

Ok, we think we know how this happens now.
User has a session, let's use ROBS1 for an example.
He minimizes ROBS1 and cannot find it.
So he starts it again and now has two ROBS1 sessions.
The second one cannot connect because that session is in use. However, if you have autoconnect turned on, it never stops trying.
Wham: Denial Of Service.
