I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No there is no way to do that.  You would have to query the event logs to see what computers they used.

On the Account tab of a user account you can use "Log On To" if you want to restrict them to a computer.

In windows 2012 there is the primary computer feature  http://windowsitpro.com/windows-server-2012/leveraging-primary-computer-feature-windows-server-2012

That is more used for roaming profiles/redirected folders.

Thanks

I think one simple way to accomplish this is to implement a logon script like below

Which domain user has logged onto which machine
