I wanted to set up a session directory logging service for my new 2008 R2 Terminal Server (Remote Desktop)  I can find how to do this for all previous servers except 2008.  I want to capture the log on/off time and user information for everyone connecting to the TS server.

That should already be logged in your Event Manager.  Go to that role in the Admin Console and poke around the events in there.  Next time I am on my R2 TS I'll take a look more specifically.

That is definitely the case, Event Viewer has the logs of the times a user logs  on and off using remote desktop services. You probably need to filter and parse that info in event viewer, just to get the log on/off events generated by RDS and nothing else. Either that, or use WMI and Powershell type script to retrieve the information you're looking for.
