Cause of Automatic Process Logout?

» close window

The Question is:

Whilst working the weekend and logging into the system console from the system
 account we returned to our session noticeing we had been automatically logged
 off.  There were no other users on the system and there are no idle process
 watching jobs running.
  Do you have any ideas

The Answer is :

  Check the system accounting and auditing logs, and check the settings
  of the username login hours and primary and secondary days in the system
  authorization database.  If the system console referenced is not directly
  connected to the OpenVMS host, check for timeout mechanisms in the
  communications path -- some terminal servers implement idle timeouts.
  Also check again for idle-process tools or utilities.
