Business licenses are limited to 20 simultaneous logins. They are intended for workstation computers with one primary user. The other 19 logins are safety margin :-). If you really need more than 20 simultaneous logins, we assume that this is a kind of login server used by many people. We sell (more expensive) server type licenses for this situation.

These logins may be remainings, though. People who used the workstation before may not have logged out with Sharity. To prevent this, you may want to add a logout hook which runs "sharity logout -a" to log out the user from all servers.

If you have automatic logins via Kerberos or the keychain, daemon processes may log in users without their knowledge. In this case you may want to add an automatic logout time. Since login occurs transparently anyway, users won't notice the logout.
