Get-LogonStatistics shows multiple lines per user. I just want a list of who is currently logged onto the Exchange Server. Some of my users have 20 rows that all look the same to me.
Also, it seems to be showing everyone who's logged on since the server came up (a week ago), even though those users aren't currently logged on. Or does that mean they still have sessions logged on even though they thought they logged off?

Turns out the other users WERE logged on. So I've logged them off, now I only show system rows + 1 user. But the 1 user shows up about 20 times.
Is there a way to get one row per user?

Veeam and MySQL: How to Perform Backup & Recovery

MySQL and the MariaDB variant are among the most used databases in Linux environments, and many critical applications support their data on them. Watch this recorded webinar to find out how Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to get consistent backups of MySQL databases.

That is because each user will actually have multiple sessions open. This script will help clean up and results and give you something closer to what you are looking for.

Isn't there a GUI version of this? To display the information in rows & columns like I get from the SQL Server Management Studio?

Exmon is just out for Exchange 2007, I have not had a chance to use it yet but the 2003 version did.

Due to the way that Exchange and Outlook work, users are not actually "logged in" to the server. Outlook does not maintain a constant connection to the server, neither does OWA. It is basically data moving between the two.

Therefore something like exmon will show you a snapshot of who was connecting at that point in time, but that is about it.
logonstatistics as you have found is unreliable - it was the same with ESM.

In short - there is no way of knowing conclusively who is currently using Exchange, because they could be working in effect "offline" and therefore only make the connection when data is actually required.

Get-LogonStatistics gives Logon Time and Last Access Time, which is quite helpful. You do have to export the output to a csv file and then open in Excel..
