Determine which AD domain controller has authenticated which domain users

Are there any methods or utilities within Server 2016 that will list which Active Directory users have been authenticated by which Active Directory domain controller?

I have several domain controllers within my organization and would like to quickly determine and monitor which users have been authenticated by which domain controller by gathering this information on the server without having to go to each client computer and running the set logonserver command line command.

"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.

Domain controllers themselves only track the last time they individually authenticated a user.  If you want a "last login" type of report, you'll need the login script I suggested before and you appear to have ignored:

You could create a csv text file by adding to their login script a command like this:

echo %username%,%computername%,%logonserver%,%date%,%time% >> \\server\share\DailyLogins%date:~-4%%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%.txt

Open in new window

(Note the above assumes standard US based date/time formats; %date% variables that produce an output other than DAY MM/DD/YYYY format will result in a different, possibly nonsense, possibly not working file name).

Then you could just open the file and review who logged in where when and was authenticated by which DC.

May this Powershell help:

Get-EventLog System -Source Microsoft-Windows-WinLogon -After (Get-Date).AddDays(-2) -ComputerName computername

This will retrieve logon and logoff information on that computer.

You can check the security log on each domain controller, which could have authenticated that user.

Enable audit policy for users login/logoff. Please see: How to Audit Successful Logon/Logoff in Active Directory:
