Track for Reporting Login and Logoff Times by User Account
Posted on 2010-08-31
I wish to create some sort of logging of when user's log in and log off. Currently, our PDC is a server 2008 r2 machine, and I am capturing login and logoff times through the event viewer. However, I do not know how to export the event viewer audits to a format in which I can do reporting.
How does everyone else out there track this information? The only pieces of data I need are the username, login time, and logoff time, and the date of login / logoff.
I would like this to be an automated process in which the data is automatically dumped into a file of any sort, so I can import it into a database for reporting.
I also have been playing around with PA Power Admin, as we have the software currently, to see if I can log the events that way.
