is there any scripts or application that can list the current users name with their host name ? We have 200 windows PC that use C001,...C200, each time we have hardtime to find out who is running the PC, we need to either go to WINS, nbtstat, Manager .. to check name one by one.

This is a Win 2000 Active Directive Domain.

Hey Joe,

We have a similar script we run at logon time.  It writes the username, hostname, ip address, and antivirus information to a file on our server.

Anyway, the parameters you want are:

%username%
%computername%

In a logon script, you could something like:

@echo   %username%,  %computername%    >>   \\server\share\login.txt

You can try using the "PSLoggedOn" tool from www.sysinternals.com.   It's part of the PSTools package for WindowsNT/2000

The format of the command would be:

psloggedon \\C001

You could write a batch file to get the list of users by doing the following:



net view >> host_list.txt

for /f "tokens=1" %%a  in (host_list.txt) do (

  psloggedon \\%%a   >>     user_log.txt

)

Honestly Joe, Experts-exchange is a great site for various scripts.  If you're not premium member, I would use google to search only EE.

Besides that, i've relied on the Help built into Windows, for help with commands like   for-do loops and what not.

If you've got any more questions, i'd be glad to help you out :)

Esch,

Would you explain the syntax of "tokens=1" %%a ? I check the windows helper, It seems that tokens=1 parse  the first word from the batch file, how about a in "%%a" ?

please advice.
