Hello Alan,

You only have to restart the server, or at least the share point or  
AFP service if you are using a Mac server.

If you are using the ODB, then sometimes just waiting will work, or  
you will have to restart the ODB.

If you are using a Windows 2K3 server, then you can clear just the  
idle users, or just restart the server.
