Is there anything built in that can allow me to get a list of where a user ID is logged into the network.  I need to see where an admin user ID for example is logged in on the network in order to log that session off.  Several servers and workstation in the env.  I can do query session on individual server names, but I need something/somehow to search/query the whole domain.  Thx

It's not possible with built in tools. Limitlogon does allow this, although i've never tried it. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2005.05.utilityspotlight.aspx

If the functional levels are 2008 for the forest and domain, you can see where they last logged in.  The only solutions I've seen for this utilize the login/log off scripts to write username, computer name, time of login/off and whatever other info is desired to a log on the network.
