Another SOX gap that has been identified for our organization is to disallow multiple logins of the same user id from different computers.  Is there a configuration/profile setting that can allow/disallow this?

Interesting requirement.  I not sure if there is even a way to meet the multiple login requirement, much less from different computers.  Outside of wrapping your own custom code around the login process that checks against your criteria, I can’t think of another way it could be done.  I’d be interested to know if you find anything else about this.

No, it won’t cause data integrity issues as they are separate sessions running on the server even though they use the same login id.

No problem!  Haven’t seen other responses to the original question on multiple logins for the same user, but tend to think it can’t be limited.  Would make sense to limit it though.
