Finding out who is logged in

I'm running a small Active Directory domain (22 users) here in a wastewater treatment plant. I've been looking off and on for a means of telling who is logged in to the machines on my network. I haven't been able to find anything in either Windows 2000 server or Windows 2003 server that will give me this information. Is there a untility that will give this information? My preference would be for one that gives the username and computername, but even the IP of the computer would help since our dynamic addressing doesn't change all that much. Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Open a Computer Management MMC, connect to the server. Expand System Tools. Click on sessions. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the helpfull tip. It doesn't show every machine, but it does show the most important ones. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

    When you look at sessions, it should show every user who is logged in to the domain at the time and the machine name or IP address. I don't think it will show if the users are not authenticated to the server or don't have resources in use on the server. Are they authenticating locally on the workstation and not the domain?

    Depending on whether or not the messenger service is running, you can also try a command line nbtstat -A IPADDRESS while logged in as the domain admin The user name will often show up in the list. Bob

    I've got a cool little utility that i think would help you. http://www.radmin.com/radmin/utility/lscan.php It will give you the usernames and the last time they logged in. Hope this helps.

    The nbtstat -A IPADDRESS is most helpful. I assume you have only one subnet. Find every system that responds by doing a ping. I would do a "ping 192.168.1.255 >active_ip.txt which will give you a good list of all of the devices on the network. Then the nbtstat command can tell you who they are.

    Many thanks to all for the tips. The PsLoggedOn utility will give me what I need once I set it up in a batch file. I really appreciate you each taking the time to lend me a hand here.
