Concurrent Logins in CF10

I understand that CF10 removes the ability to have multiple logins to the administrator pages due to security concerns.  Not only is this is a huge inconvenience, it prohibits the use of multiserver monitor or server manager since it only allows one concurrent login per physical server. 

Has anyone found a workaround?  I have tried multiple usernames, however I still get logged out if a different user logs in to a different instance. 

Thanks,

-Tony

Glad you at least found that you can cause different usernames to solve the CF Admin login problem (and CF11 fixes that with a new option to let you turn that security feature off).

As for the MSMon and Server Manager, I’ve seen that too, and it’s a tougher nut to crack. I’ve not dug into it, but I’ve wondered about it before: what if you configured those so that they connect back to the instances (to be monitored) using different identifiers for the URL. Perhaps the instances are accessible by not only localhost/127.0.0.1, but also an internal IP address, a domain name, and/or a machine name. If you setup the tools to call these multiple instances (on a given machine) these different ways, perhaps the flash shared objects (flash equivalent to cookies) would be created separately for each instance, and perhaps that would allow you to get around the problem.

Let us know what you find. But again, CF11 has the ultimate solution to the problem.

Different usernames does not fix the problem for me. 

If I log in to instance cfusion1 with user1, then I log into cfusion2 with user2, I will find that user1 has been logged out.

Guitsboy, I was not suggesting different usernames for your MSMon or SvrMgr problems. I understood from your first note that you were aware of that as solution for the CF Admin, and were now facing a different (but similar) challenge with the other tools. So did you try what I had suggested, for that?

More to the point, as for your saying now, “If I log in to instance cfusion1 with user1, then I log into cfusion2 with user2, I will find that user1 has been logged out”, are you referring here to the CF Admin or to the MSMon or SvrMgr? If the latter, again, try what I offered above. (If you’re saying the problem is also in the CF Admin, that would be odd. Different usernames should solve the problem.)

Just trying to help.

Thanks for the response again Charlie, I appreciate the help.

Odd as it may be, the former example is exactly what I am experiencing.  Logging in with different usernames has not fixed even the CFadmin issue.

Open the Coldfusion Administrator. Navigate to Security => User Manager. Create the extra admin accounts. That should fix at least the admin issue.

Does not work.  Thats what I just replied about in my last post.   Creating additional admin accounts, and switching all CF admins to multiple logins does not keep my from getting logged out.   Its very strange, it seems to work for everyone else.

What happens when you use a different browser for each login? That is the setup I tested with. Successfully.

Youre right, if I open separate browsers or at least anonymous / incognito windows, it will allow concurrent logins.  Multiple tabs in chrome were not enough.  Still, yuck.  I have 12 instances to administer, and it would be so much easier to have them tabbed in browsers.   How is it that Adobe has not fixed this, the multiserver monitoring, or even server manager issue?   I mean, why include the features if they are completely broken and useless?

Pretty good content for a bug report.
