thank you very much for your KB-Post. Unfortunately it's not fully clear what you are referring to, could you maybe elaborate again, with different words? Do you mean physical access to a server? Maybe opening a rack door? Or if somebody is logged in on the server? Thank you!

best regards.

We are 12 technicians and take the hand away regularly on our servers. And sometimes this causes problems because it takes the hand while someone is already over. There is a sensor that does it to see if somebody is connected on the server ?

On Windows, you can try the Windows Logged in Users Sensor maybe.
