Is there an easy way to see who all logged on to AD between the hours of say 8am and 10pm using WIndows standard server tools? If not - are there any free tools or relatively low cost tools that could provide this kind of insight? Thanks.

The reporting of logon / logoff of users is logged in the event log of the dc server

For reporting you need a third party tool

Try this one

I recommend using Splunk as it has a very good web interface, ability to report on any settings in Event Logs as well as the ability to index and report on an kind of data (SQL, log files, text files, etc.).  Download the free version from http://www.splunk.com
