What happens when I Implement the Config > Security > Access > Concurrent Remote Connections Allowed to Disabled. 

Environment

Release:
Component: CAPAMX

Resolution

When you implement the Concurrent Remote Connections Allowed to Disabled:
  • PAM doesn't allow the same user to log into the same appliance (more than once) from different IP addressed

Additional Information

Note:  This setting, even though a global setting, is only evaluated at each appliance.  It will only stop duplicate logins into the same appliance.
This setting doesn't work across clusters and/or multiple appliances.
