Hi, I have a native mode 2003 domain with about 100 users, sharing 30 workstations.

How can I figure out which users are logging on to which workstation? if I can export a neat list to csv that'd be great!

many thanks.

That's not so simple with scripting. I would suggest to try Spiceworks reporting to check if it fullfils your requirements. That's free software available at www.spiceworks.com

I don't know if Windows has some built-in accounting in this regard. But you could easily do some accounting of your own, by making a login script and logoff script that writes a little file when logging in, and deleting it when logging off.

when logging in:
copy nul "%computername% %username%" > "\\myserver\myshare\active_clients\"

Open in new window


when logging off:
del "\\myserver\myshare\active_clients\%computername% %username%"

Open in new window


To see who is active:
dir "\\myserver\myshare\active_clients\"

Open in new window


The login and logoff script can be assigned separately to each user, but you will be much happier specifying it in your Group Policy.

PS. Regarding the list of users (3rd code): if you don't want to see the login time, you can also do "dir /b" to see only the computer names and user names.
