do you mean who logged in what time etc?

i just have the feeling that you have not enabled the auditing feature on the 2008 server, although you can always check the security log

Start-->Run--->eventvwr-->Security.

Overwrite happens when the amount of space you have mentioned for the Event log is achieved ...

Are you trying to get the Last login details or details of each login ?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Here is another great option that adds to a text based log every time a user logsin.

Create a script called logon.cmd and add the following line to it

echo logon %username% %computername% %date% %time% >> \\DOMIANNAME\netlogon\logon.log

Open in new window
