For SBS Essentials 2011

Anyone aware of an existing utility that would each day, filter the appropriate logs and send an email to a nominated address providing a list showing user logons, to which PCs (including remote logons) during the previous 24 hours?

I am good at following directions if you think this is achievable at the administrator level.

Thanks

I don't know of an existing utility but I have seen it done with logon scripts that write the info to a text file each time someone logs in, and those could be collected and manipulated on a daily basis.  It may not be ideal depending on how many systems you have in your network.  If you are at all interested in this method I'll dig out the script I had for this (the logon script).

This is what I have used in the past.  You would still need to collect the files and manipulate them or put them together however you wanted to deal with them.
