fix

No, the agents that are deployed on each DC by Directory and Resource Administrator can only collect the information that is present on the DC's.  When a user logs onto a computer, no timestamp or entry is created on the DC's for which computer was logged onto.  

 

There is a tool in the Microsoft resource kit called Cconnect. Below is a small excerpt of the functionality of this tool.  You will notice that this tool requires a client component to be installed on every workstation.

 

Cconnect.exe: Con-Current Connection Limiter

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This tool provides a method of tracking concurrent connections of users and monitoring what computers users are logged on to a network.  The tool consists of two components, a client and an administrator.

Con-Current Connection Limiter:

·          Is completely hidden from the end user's view.

·          Keeps track of all computers that users are logged onto.

·          Tracks last known user of the computer.

·          Monitors what logon server users are logging into.

·          Allows concurrent connection limitations to be set on a per-user or per-group basis.

·          Stores all information in a Microsoft® SQL Server? database assigned by the Administrator.
