I have a batch file that contains:

gpresult /s %1 /user %2 /h report.htm /f

How can I change this so that /user %2 is the current logged in user of the remote machine?

The %username% inputs the current logged in user of my machine. How can I have it give me the current logged in user of the remote machine?

It's not that easy, because there may be several accounts logged on on the remote machine. Download Microsoft's PsLoggedOn (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897545.aspx) and put it into the same folder as the script below. The script will query for logged on users on the remote machine, and give you a menu to pick form if more than user is logged on. As before, you can still pass it the user name in the command line as second argument:
@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set ReportFile=report.html
if "%~1"=="" (
	echo Syntax: %~nx0 Computer [Username]
	goto :eof
set Computer=%~1
if not "%~2"=="" (
	set User=%~2
	goto GPResult
set User=
set /a UserCount = 0
for /f "skip=1" %%a in ('psloggedon.exe -x -l -accepteula \\%Computer% 2^>NUL') do (
	set /a UserCount += 1
	set User[!UserCount!]=%%~a
if "%UserCount%"=="0" (
	echo No users sessions found on %Computer%.
	goto :eof
if "%UserCount%"=="1" (
	set User=%User[1]%
	goto GPResult
set User=
echo More than one user is logged on; please choose one:
for /l %%i in (1, 1, %UserCount%) do (
	echo %%i	!User[%%i]!
set /p ID=^>
set User=!User[%ID%]!
if "%User%"=="" goto :eof
gpresult.exe /s %Computer% /user %User% /h "%ReportFile%" /f
start "" "%ReportFile%"
