We have two domain controllers in 2008 R2 AD environment.
I want to know which users logged the DC1, is there any way to check that?

Or any power shell command to do that?

Thank you.

In AD 2008, it is directly not possible. But you can have last logon date of that user.
You can write a script (logon/logoff) for that.
Have a look at this:

If you want to know specific users logon server(DC which authenticated user), then add the following command logon script

echo Logged in at %Date% %TIME% on PC %COMPUTERNAME% authenticated by %LOGONSERVER%>> \\servername\Logs\User\%USERNAME%.log

I want know the user logged with which domain controller DC1 or DC2, from server side, no need to visit client computer.

Is there any free third party tools able to do that?
Thanks.
