you can't directly. it's because eachcomputer could be used by a number of users. The two types of objects are not joined.  But you can use psloggedon by sysinternals fo generate a list. you pass comp. names and it can loop and see who's logged on each one.  hth. bye!

You could also write a script to check the latest documents and settings or users folders on each PC to confirm the consumer

You can do as follows:
(1) Create a share folder on server with write permission to all the users.
(2) Write logon script as batch file with following command:
           (A) If you want separate text files for each PC:
                 echo %username% >> \\path\to\shared\folder\%computername%.log
           (B) If you want all computers name against usernames in single text file:
                 echo %username% %computername% >> \\path\to\shared\folder\logfile.log
(3) apply this to GPO linked OU which contains users you want to have a log of.
(4) Wait for three four day and you will have a cool information in the folder.
