Log a User Out of the Router

Purpose

Disconnect a user session when that session does not terminate after the user logs out.

Action

To log a user out of all terminal sessions on a router, enter the following JUNOS CLI operational mode command:

user@host> request system logout username

Sample Output


user@host> show system users
10:07PM  up 13 days,  1:25, 2 users, load averages: 0.17, 0.05, 0.02
USER     TTY      FROM                              LOGIN@  IDLE WHAT
harry    p0       hpot-lt.cmpy.net                 10:07PM     - -cli (cl
wizard   p1       hpot-lt.cmpy.net                 10:06PM     - -cli (cl

user@host>  request system logout user harry
user@host>  show system users                 
10:07PM  up 13 days,  1:25, 1 user, load averages: 0.24, 0.06, 0.02
USER     TTY      FROM                              LOGIN@  IDLE WHAT
wizard   p1       hpot-lt.cmpy.net                 10:06PM     - -cli (cl

Meaning

The sample output for the first show system users command shows there were two users on the router, harry and wizard. The request system logout user command was issued to log out user harry. Because there is no output to indicate that harry was logged out, the show system users command was issued again to verify that user harry was actually logged out of the router.
