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)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

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

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.
