MS Windows 2008 Server - logon/logoff reporting

I have had a customer ask the following:

Is there any way to run a report of some kind that lists every users' log in and log out times?

I'm looking for a computerized time clock of sorts.  I remember in Novell I could get a systems report that listed users and their log in data.  But I don't know if such a thing exists in Windows.

I googled, and found a lot about vbs scripts, and batch files.  I think the customer is looking for something a little more elegent, and user friendly.

Is there a reporting function built-in to Win 2008?  

If not, is there a third party reporting tool that is able to glean this information from AD and generate a "management" report?

Thanks

There is no built-in tools for that. But you can try with trial version (and finally buy software) of Security Explorer's Auditing feature.

Please check that

Sorry, but I dont see where that generates reports for logon/logoff.  I see where it reports on changes made to AD, but not user activity.

You can try WinReporter or NetWrix Logon Reporter. Just google them. both have reporting, and custom reporting for logon/logoff
