A tool that network administrators use?

By rsears ·
Does anyone know of a tool that network administrators use to determine which workstations users are logged onto in an NT environment? Something ?simple? with a nice interface that lists all of the machines in the domain and what users are logged onto them at that moment in time. If it had more advanced features that had logging to generate simple historical reports that list username, and resources used either locally and/or domain wide would be nice but not essential. Oh yea, something that?scheep or free is even better. Thanks in advance.

Somewhat of a solution, if you are familar with batch files create one that hits every ip in your org using the nbtstat -A ipaddress
if it exist use the net view \\ipaddress and pipe everything into a text file ie

echo off
echo Starting log >c:\userlist.txt
use dos environment variables to auto increment the last octet, If you wan't some help e-mail me and I'll send or post a batch file, it's raw but works quite well and can be scheduled!!
Good luck
Mike

The cheapest route is using server manager and select each workstation and view current connections (however, not the most productive). Another way is using a monitoring tool that would consolidate all of that information for you in a readable fashion. One i suggest is bluelance's LTAuditor located @ www.bluelance.com. You can download a free eval that will not expire!

Look into a product called Hyena by Adkins Resource.
It wont do all that you want but I've come to depend on it a lot.

If you have the NT Resource Kit you could use Net Watcher. It allows you to view user activity on multiple servers.

Check out LoggedOn from www.sysinternals.com. Nothing fancy and it has limitations, but it's free.
