I have 2 Domain controllers in site how would i know or check which client is connected to DC1 and which one to DC2,

Note: we can do it from client to find out what is the current DC but how should we know to find a list of clients from server.

check the logon events on each servers security event log.
Or from now on use the following LOGON/LOGOFF scripts
Name: Log On.bat
rem The following line creates a rolling log file of usage by workstation
echo Log In %Date% %TIME% %USERNAME% %LOGONSERVER%>> \\servername\Logs\Computer\%COMPUTERNAME%.log

rem The following line creates a rolling log file of usage by user
echo Log In %Date% %TIME% %COMPUTERNAME% %LOGONSERVER%>> \\servername\Logs\User\%USERNAME%.log
echo Log In %Date% %TIME% %COMPUTERNAME% >> \\servername\Logs\User\%LOGONSERVER%.log

Open in new window

Name: Log Off.bat

rem The following line creates a rolling log file of usage by workstation
echo Log Off %Date% %TIME% %USERNAME% %LOGONSERVER%>> \\servername\Logs\Computer\%COMPUTERNAME%.log
echo Log Off %Date% %TIME% %USERNAME%>> \\servername\Logs\Computer\%LOGONSERVER%.log

rem The following line creates a rolling log file of usage by user
echo Log Off %Date% %TIME% %COMPUTERNAME% %LOGONSERVER%>> \\servername\Logs\User\%USERNAME%.log

Open in new window

Create a share LOGS and edit the batch files to reflect the correct server name and log location
Put these files in the Logs folder.

Add Log In.bat to the Logon scripts box and Log Off.bat to the Logoff scripts box

Or if the PC is locked and the. Unlocked ?
