Terminal Server Audit

Posted on 2003-02-20

I have a 2000 server with terminal server installed on it. I am not currently experiencing any loading problems, but I would be interested in knowing what kind of loading the server is experiencing, who is logging into it, how long they are connected, ... etc.

My question is: Is there a windows 2000 setting that would log this information or is there a third party application that can log this type of information?

Set up a Domain Security Policy on the SERVER to for auditing purposes.
Open the domain security policy in administrative tools...
Expand security settings
local policy
highlight audit policy
In the right side of the window select the option you wish to enable, right click with mouse and select security
enable the policy
select success, failure or both
monitor the system, application and security sections of the event viewer for that machine

Alternatively, just use TERMINAL SERICES MANAGER and also TASK MANAGER to monitor how much memory all the users are occupying on the server and eliminate performance issues...
