who authenticated to a domain controller

I would like to know what users authenticated to a particular domain controller.

From a domain controller how can i generate a list of users that authenticated, or are currently authenticated to that server ?

From the workstation I know i can just type "set" and look at LOGONSERVER.

but i want to see it from the domain controller itself and see all the users that authenticated to this server .

Thanks

have you enabled audit account logon events?

Yes I have it enabled, but it still is not showing me a nice clean list of what users logged into the server. I see a lot of logins that are computer names and not usernames. and I  only see it when I actually open up the event.

When i just look at the list of events USER is system for all account logon event 672 in the Security Log.

Unless there is something else i should be searching for.

Thanks

I don't think you will ever get a nice clean list of users who authenticated to a server, what time they authenticated, IP address, etc (removing duplicates for multiple resource access). There are no native tools that I know of to do this. You might have to look at 3rd party tool

There is no built-in feature that could allow you to list all logged on users for the domain.
You can try the 3rd party tool :
