when a user has logged in and off the network

I was just asked by a memeber of management to let them know when a user has logged in today and noticed I didn't have the domain control logging in/out enabled.  I just turned it on and its working but is there anyway to tell prior to this GP being enabled?  I just need to see when they logged on today and in the past if possible.  Thank you!

Do you know their machine name?  Check the security logs on their workstation.
Hope that person came in on time :)
Thanks

If you didn't have auditing on before it won't go back and pull that info.  Do you all have badges where you work.  If you do it maybe worth a shot to talk to those folks and see what time the person badged in.
...or catch him next week :)

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I'm winging this from memory, but the DC logs should track this event as a 538 or 539 entry.

jbishop2446b - another thought - you have posted this in only the 'Active Directory' Zone, which is very low on the activity scale around here.
You will get a lot more exposure if you click on the 'Request Attention' link and ask the Moderators to add in to the Server and Network Zones.
