I need to find out the maximum amount of users logged onto our domain at a point in time.
I know there is s Last Logged onto query but I need to find all currently active users

Is there a way of doing this in SMS 2003

I do not believe there is a way of doing this using either Active Directory or SMS 2003. While there is a last logontimestamp attribute in active directory it is not 100% accurate and there is no way of querying who is logged into the domain at any given moment.
