    Seeing who is logged on

    Is there a facility in Windows Server 2003 where i can check who is logged onto what workstation (Past or Present)?

    I understand you can create logon scripts saying
    echo %computer name%, %username% >> \\servername\filename\logon.log etc...

    But that may cause problems when multiple users are trying to write to the log at the same time. Is there a progrmam or anything in Windows Server 2003 i can use?

    Hope you can help

    To view past logons, connect to the eventlog on a given machine using Event Viewer.

    To go with current ones, you could elaborate on the logon script idea but use VBScript and an Access database, and there shouldn't be any locking issues with it. I'm pretty sure this has been covered on the forum before.

    Would i use the same code but instead of having a .log file have the details go into a Access Database.

    for present connection, you need to go to "manage this server" in the CP, then click on file server and then sessions. This will tell you who is logged in atm and on what machines.
