Hi, I am trying to figure out what solutions are on the market that can be used to keep track of who logged into what computer at a specific time and the like in a domain environment.  I know I can do sort of that kind of tracking via Domain Controller's Security Audit logs, but it is pretty plain and vague.

Am I missing something in Server 2003/2008 about event logs or do I need to seek a third-party app to assist with this?

Thanks in advance.

That sounds great ProtechCT.  Would that report in the Domain Controller Security Audit Log?
I cannot have it report on the client PCs because once they restart it is wiped clean.

ProtechCT,
Does this GPO settings report in the DC or on the client PC?

Thanks.

No answer?
If a domain account is used, they will be logged on both the domain controller and the local computer.
