User Login information

We have a windows 2003 domain system. I am wondering if their is a way to know which user id is connected to the server along with the computer name. Currently we would run netscan utility that would tell all the ip addresses & computer name but it wont tell us the domain user id connected to the domain. There must be some app to give this mapping  information (computer name & user id)

I usually use the shared folders snap in. Once you load up this snap in you will have a section called sessions. This will give you the username and computer name that is connected

Its clearly shown in the task manager of the Server.
You can get User i.d and Machine name from where the users are connected.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

The information (computer management utility & net session) does give the mapping between ip address & user id but it wont show the computer name.

In 2003 server, this option is not available,

You can get default open fils / Session list with IP address,

Then you can convert IP to hostname to findout Session against hostname.

Download IP to Hostname script from below technet thread :

In 2008 Server you will get this inforamtion from Administrative Tools --> Share and storage management

Right click --> Manage session

If the shared folders snap in is only showing IP addresses it may mean the computers are not properly configured with DNS. I just took a look at my shared folders sessions and it lists the user name, computername, open files etc.

Joe, it does show computer name for few. Where do I go to see DNS configuration for those who are not set up correctly

Another way to know connections which are active in the server

http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/how-do-i-find-out-that-who-are-connected-to-my-windows-based-web-server.html

But you add the TCP/IP parameters to monitor then add the connection are active and connection are established.
