Preface Overview Administering Clusters From EAM Console Managing a Cluster from your Workstation Managing Session Delegation

Ending the control over a Workstation

Ending the control over a Workstation

Subject

There are two ways to end the control over a delegated workstation.

  • If you do not lock the workstation, it will be locked when you lock your cluster.
  • To take back the control over your delegated workstation, the latter must be locked.

When the delegate unlocks his cluster, the previously controlled workstation does not unlock itself. To take the control back, he must follow the same procedure as described in Accessing a Colleague’s Workstation in a Cluster.

Procedure

Do one of the following operations:

  • On the delegated workstation, press Windows+L to lock it.
  • The delegate ends the control by following this procedure:
    1. Double-click the Authentication Manager icon in the notification area.
    • Reauthenticate if needed.

      The Access a colleague’s workstation window appears.

    • Select the workstation(s) you want to end control over and click the Lock button.

    The workstation is not under your control anymore.
