    You can set up a Group Policy on your Server to use an audit log which lets you audit account logon events.
    The Group Policy is in Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Security Settings-Local Policies->Audit Policy
    Don't log everything cos they can take up a fair amount of space

    i find it more usable to log details from the login script to text files i.e. Logging Logins

    so do i just copy this:

    for /f "tokens=1,2,3* delims=/ " %%a in ('date /t') do set date=%%a%%b%%c%%d
    for /f "tokens=1,2 delims=:" %%a in ('time /t') do set time=%%a%%b

    echo %date%,%time%,%username% >> \\server\computer$\%computername%.txt
    echo %date%,%time%,%computername% >> \\server\user$\%username%.txt

    into the logon script? (ovbiously changing the server bit to a working link?)

    yup. & everyone needs read/write on the share tho cos its appending files under their logon. u dont have to have 2 different shares. i use logs$ with \users\ and \computers\
