	Other command it could be usefull is to remove a temporal user-server 
association in director. For example, I had a downtime in one server, so 
users normally directed to this server is now been directed to other. 
Now I want a user to get back to his normal server (force it, I know we 
willl get back after a timeout), but I don't want to flush all user 
connections to the backup server.
