How to find out quickly where a user is loggon on?
i want a quick and easy way to find out which computer in the school a particualr user is logged onto. Is there an easy way of doing this within windows or with any free software?

On the server that hosts the user profiles, open up Computer Management, and look at the open share sessions. That will list the profiles being accessed against the IP being used - then use nslookup at a command prompt to get the name of the computer from the IP.

I have some software i wrote that records user logins and log outs to a database which is then pulled into a auto-updating spreadhseet. I know of no way to find this out using built in tools.
Although I did just think you could possibly find out from the user sessions on your file server.
Edit: What ^^he^^ said :P

Implement Webmans Login tracker - really easy and just works!

add something like this to your logon script
echo %date% %time% %computername% %username% >>\\myserver\logon$\logons.txt

Will that make it append the logon info to the same text file or will it keep over writing it ?

We have mail groups for minitored students and it sends an email to us when a member of that group logs on and tells us the machine they log on to...

DC event monitor > security
Use the event finder for username in the description section and at least one of the last 3 events will usually give an IP or computer name of their login.
