Count active thin clients on a domain

I need to find the total number of thin clients on a domain. The thin clients are set up to RDP into the RDS server, however we have quite a few desktops that RDP into the RDS servers as well.

Is there an easy way to track down all the thin clients on the network?

My guess is I would have to make a login script on the RDS servers that appends the machine name to a file.

Any other ideas?

Spiceworks will be able to count our thin clients even if they arent on the domain?

Yes it can do that - usually a common admin username and password are required.
