Do you mean logged on to the server directly such as through RDP or just connected through network shares?

The instructions below assume the system you are talking about is a virtual server. Let me know if it's a virtual desktop:

The easiest way to find out who is logged into a server, even if is virtual, is to first log into that system and then go into the Administrative Tools located in Control Panel and open the Remote Desktop Services folder. Once inside this folder, open Remote Desktop Services Manager. After this is open, you can see what sessions are active or disconnected and by which user, simply by looking at the User tab as well as the Sessions tab. You can then disconnect a user; log a user off the system; or even send a message from this console by doing a "right click" on the user name and choosing the preferred option. I hope this helps. Keep me posted.

Regards...
