I am looking for a software which triggers an email alert everytime a user is trying to logon to a particular server.

I need to know who has logged in to which server, at what time etc. and want this app to be transparent to the user.

I have around 20 servers and want to keep a tab on who is logging on which server etc.

All servers Windows 2003


Regards,
Pete

I use this code to log all logon attempts to our terminal server (created a \\SERVERNAME\LOGS$\ share) then this writes usernames as well as date/time of logon to a text file called LogOns.log.

This could be coupled with an additional command to e-mail the log file using telnet for instance. ?
rem Log on script
If Exist "\\SERVERNAME\logs$\LogOns.Log" GoTo START1
Echo Log File > "\\SERVERNAME\logs$\LogOns.Log"
:START1
Echo. >> "\\SERVERNAME\logs$\LogOns.Log"
Echo ------------------------------------------------------ >> "\\SERVERNAME\logs$\LogOns.Log"
Echo Log On:  %USERNAME%  %COMPUTERNAME%  %Date:~0,12%  %Time:~0,5% >> "\\SERVERNAME\logs$\LogOns.Log"

To email me things I use postie from infradig (http://www.infradig.com) which is free for personal or non commercial use and has a very small fee for small commercial use.

In my login script I write to a log file simulair like sgsm81 and then have that emailed to me.

I could write you the whole bunch, but you proberbly want it your own way.

Postie should be able to help you

Good luck.

i use eventsentry.  it has some nice monitoring software for login and file/folder access.  you can log it to a database and/or set alerts.  for all that it does, the cost is low.
