I need to query a list of computers and retrieve users that have logged in to each computer.
for instance:
computerA =User1 logged in
ComputerB=User20 logged in

it will be nice if the script can give me for instance:
computerA= user1 ,user7,user3 have logged into at separate date and time..

Thanks

Hi,

You can add this into your user's logon script:

@echo off
echo %date% %time% Logon %UserName% %ComputerName% >> \\MyServer\MyShare\LogTimes.txt

Then you can open it via excel (open a new file / Data / From text) and filter and sort it based on what information you need, e.g. username, computer name, etc.

Cheers,
Joe

Hi,

You could try the following PowerShell script from Technet Script Gallery.

Try to do that with free SysInternals tool called PsLoggedOn
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897545.aspx

This is really easy in use tool which allows for scripting
