Symptom

A user directly closes the browser after logging in to the eSight in single user mode. When another user attempts to log in to the eSight, the login fails and the message "The system already enters the single user mode. Please login later." is displayed.

Possible Causes

Subsequent user login attempts can succeed only after the user logging in to the eSight in single user mode exits the eSight normally. If the user only closes the browser to exit the eSight, the web page server session is not released and other users cannot successfully log in.

Pay attention to the following when using the single user mode:

  • In single user mode, the eSight allows only the current user to log in and forcibly logs out the other online users.
  • After the maintenance is complete, the user needs to exit the single user mode in a timely manner. Otherwise, other users cannot successfully log in to the eSight.
