I have CM 5.2 and i was wondering if i could increase the number of simultaneous logins (sessions) on it.

Thank you.

Default CM Logins


Communication Manger supports max 15 simultaneous logins. However there are some restrictions based on the server type and activity:

For more information:

Avaya AuraTM Communication Manager System Capacities Table Release 5.2:

System Management sessions are used for system administration and maintenance purposes, and some of the platforms allow multiple simultaneous sessions. The S87xx servers support 15 simultaneous sessions. However, the system allows a maximum of 10 simultaneous administration sessions such as add and change, as long as they are not accessing the same data. For example, 2 administrator users cannot change the same station object simultaneously. Commands such as test, busyout, release, and status are maintenance commands. Up to 5 simultaneous maintenance commands can be issued in addition to the administration commands, as long as they are not accessing the same data and the command is not designated as a single user command

Row numbers:
2660 Simultaneous Admin Commands
2665 Simultaneous Maintenance Commands
2670 Simultaneous System Management Sessions

Also, Avaya's AAA method (Authentication, Authorization and Accounting) might help you out. Please refer to this document:

Communication Manager Administrator Logins

13.5 pam_limits
Pam_limits is used to restrict resources such as the amount of CPU time, number of open files, number of processes, etc. that a user may access. These limits are more appropriate to a general purpose computing platform than to the Communication Manager server because these limits are controlled by the Communication Manager application. Attempting to change these limits via PAM may cause unexpected behavior. There are, however, two limits that can be set, maxlogins and maxsyslogins. The first controls the maximum number of sessions that may be active simultaneously for a particular user and the second controls the maximum number of simultaneous sessions for all users taken together. To use pam_limits to limit the number of sessions, pam_limits must be enabled in the PAM configuration (Figure 6. on page 16) and the /etc/security/limits.conf file must be edited to set values for maxlogins or maxsyslogins.

Hope this helps as a start
