Hi all!

I am struggeling with the next problem. We have 2 terminal servers, receiving ICA and RDP connections from our workers.

I need to get an HTA build where i can select a user from AD (lastname or username), then the script has to go look on the two servers if the user is active and present me on wich server the user is active. Then i need to have a menu, to reset the users session or to view the users processes and let me select what proces to kill.

I have some code to do the first step (let me select a user from AD), but i don't know from where to go there.
Sub Start_Search
	If txtSearchText.Value <> "" Then
	    For Each objOption In lstUsers.Options
	        lstUsers.Remove(objOption.Index)
    	Next
 
		' Determine DNS domain name.
		Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
		strDNSDomain = objRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")
		 
		' Use ADO to search Active Directory.
		Set objCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
		Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
		objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
		objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
		objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
		strBase = "<LDAP://" & strDNSDomain & ">"
		 
		'Change this to the Netbios Domain Name
		Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
		strNetBiOSDomain = objNetwork.UserDomain
	
		If optSearchType(0).Checked = True Then
			' Username is selected
	        strFilter = "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(samAccountName=" & txtSearchText.Value & "))"
		Else
			' Last name is selected
	        strFilter = "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(sn=" & txtSearchText.Value & "))"
		End If
		strAttributes = "givenName,sn,sAMAccountName,adsPath"
		strQuery = strBase & ";" & strFilter & ";" & strAttributes & ";subtree"
		objCommand.CommandText = strQuery
		objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
		objCommand.Properties("Timeout") = 30
		objCommand.Properties("Cache Results") = False
		Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
		Set objRecordSetArr = objCommand.Execute
	
		If objRecordSet.EOF Then
			MsgBox "Er zijn geen gebruikers gevonden."
		Else
			While Not objRecordSet.EOF
				Set objOption = Document.CreateElement("OPTION")
				objOption.Text = objRecordSet.Fields("givenName").Value & " " & objRecordSet.Fields("sn").Value
				objOption.Value = objRecordSet.Fields("adsPath").Value
				lstUsers.Add objOption
				objRecordSet.MoveNext
			Wend
		End If
	Else
		MsgBox "Voer een zoekterm in."
	End If

Hi, with the user selected from AD, you can use code like the following to see if that user has an active session on a computer:

strComputer = "RemotePC"
strUserLoginID = "auser"

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select Name From Win32_Process Where Name='explorer.exe'")
For Each objProcess In colProcessList
	colProperties = objProcess.GetOwner(strNameOfUser,strUserDomain)
	If LCase(strUserLoginID) = LCase(strNameOfUser) Then MsgBox "Active session"
Next

Open in new window


Then, you can practically run the same code to get the process list for that user, and decide what to terminate.

I don't know about resetting the session though.

Regards,

Rob.
