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.

ELM Event Log Monitor includes a pre-configured Audit - Logon/Logoff Activity Report which can be scheduled to run daily/weekly....and sent to a shared File/Folder.

Thanks, we decided to try this one first as it seems a bit less involved:

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.
