If you enable security auditing in the local policy or domain policy and set it to audit logon events then you should see these entries in the security log of the particular server you are wanting to audit.

I use bginfo for this purpose, plus it has a few perks for veiwing needed info that I set it up for on a desktop.

http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/BgInfo.html

I have my users loginscript set to run bginfo.exe from a share at login.

set DAY=%DATE:~10,4%%DATE:~7,2%%DATE:~4,2%
\\servername\share$\bginfo \\servername\share$\bgsettings.bgi /timer:0
set DAY=

This outputs a .csv file to the share$ each day in the date format specified and writes a new .csv file everyday.

Hope that helps
