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

For W’2003 server….
Click Control Panel > Administrative Tool and navigate to Local Policies & click “Audit Policy”. Now to monitor user’s activities to terminal services, just double-click “Terminal Services”. On next dialog box, select Enabled from policy value box. Again, click OK to save the settings. It can be also done through remote control option in tsadmin (an exe ) / use shadow the command line.
For W’2008 server, you may use Windows System Resource Manager / WSRM.

    Yes, you can see that information remotely. You can use tsadmin console and then select Connect to Computer and select remote server that you want to monitor. You can also use Event Viewer and Connect to Another Computer to see Security Event Logs and TerminalServices-LocalSessionManager and TerminalServices-RemoteConnectionManager logs from remote computer. In that case you need to filter and combine these events to get a full picture who is logged where.

    I would recommend you to try Terminal Services Log software (third-party tool) because it will save you time in generating various reports from multiple servers.
