What is the best way to track and log user login and log out on a Terminal Server.  We need this in order to be able to report to HR how much time remote users use the Terminal server.

Write Windows service, you will get  Login/Log off  sessesion change  in  
protected override void OnSessionChange(
                  SessionChangeDescription changeDescription)
        {


   if (changeDescription.Reason == SessionChangeReason.SessionLogon)
            {
              //  write information to file/table
            }
            if (changeDescription.Reason == SessionChangeReason.SessionLogoff)
            {
              //  write information to file/table
            }
 
        }
 
 and install this in your remote server machine.
