Limit device sessions
The Limit device sessions field controls whether the number of device sessions allowed for a user is limited. The value does not restrict the use of the System Request menu or a second sign-on from the same device.

- CL parameter:
|*SYSVAL||The QLMTDEVSSN system value is used.|
|*NO||The user may be signed on to more than one device at the same time.|
|*YES||The user may not be signed on to more than one device at the same time.|
|0||The user is not limited to a specific number of device sessions. This value has the same meaning as *NO.|
|1||The user is limited to a single device session. This value has the same meaning as *YES.|
|2 - 9||The user is limited to the specified number of device sessions.|
Recommendations: Limiting users to one workstation at a time is one way to discourage sharing user profiles. Set the QLMTDEVSSN system value to 1 (YES). If some users have a requirement to sign on at multiple workstations, use the Limit device sessions field in the user profile for those users.
