I need to know write a query to show all users logged into a particular instance of a MS SQL 2005.

This instance contains multiple databases.

I know of sp_who and sp_who2 but that only seems to give me information for one database at a time.

I am looking for an aggregate of all users on all databases in a single instance.

sp_who and sp_who2 give you connections to every database.  That's why there is a dbName column.
