Real time monitoring user activety and login/out W server 2008R2 HV
Posted on 2011-09-13
I want to try to accomplish two things. I would like to simply see a log of which users login in/out to a W2008 server. I know I can look at the server logs but that is a bit to weed through all the other login/out entries. Separately I would like to be able to shadow a users session. I've used VNC but that is visible to the user. I have workers who log into a remote server with remote desktop and it is hard to ascertain how much of their time is actually being used towards working, as compared to sitting idle while the pay clock ticks and they are actually doing other things in their remote, often home office. That is the one disadvantage of using remote workers is it is hard to verify/monitor their activities.
