Hello everyone,

I need a script that will give me the last user information (username, date and time only) for over 200 servers across the network. What I am trying to do is track user activity on the server. I would like to be able to have this information dumped into a file which I can export into a spreadsheet. I want to run this script from any box that I log into. I will be able to run it with root access. I also need to be able to exclude certain users as a few users like myself log into boxes just to see when the last time owners have used it. Output should be

servername username date time

I am new to scripting so I dont have a clue where to start.

Can someone please help.  AIX 5.3.12  - Shell Script
