Fast User Switching with OpenLab CDS

Hi all,

We had an installation of OpenLab CDS 2.1 running as client server model.  We recently upgraded this to OpenLab 2.5, provisioned a new server, migrated the data and reinstalled OpenLab on all clients and AICs.  All ran smoothly until we noticed a minor issue after project close out:  the installation of OL on the clients and AICs has switched off Fast USer Switching on the clients and AICs.  It's not earth shattering, but it can be a busy lab and the scientists are used to leaving the client locked and switching between users.  Now they are finding the clients locked fully when they expect to be able to log in over each other.

We know how to resolve the issue in Windows settings, but my question is whether or not we should?  Does anyone have experience of multiple (Windows) users logging into an OL client causing issues?  It was fine in OL 2.1 but has something changed in subsequent releases?

Many thanks!
