  • monitoring logins

    I've been asked to give a report on who logged in at what time over the weekend. Is there a way to do this in sbs 2003 r2 standard? I figure this has been asked before but I couldn't find it.

    The answers for this are the same as Windows 2003 Server. A quick should find you a number of options, not least the option of adding a login/logout script.

      Must be a semantics issue then because I'm not finding the right keywords to search for apparently. I would've thought this would be built in, but apparently not. If I have to set up a script or gpo or anything, it's already too late since we were wanting last weekends data.

        So go through your security log in the event viewer for last weekend. Everything is there.
        Happy Reading

          Well, actually if I caught it earlier it would've been easy to find it through there. I wasn't aware they were logged in there. Unfortunately I only have from the 27th to today probably due to the default log file size. ugh.

            As a rule, I set the security log to 64Mb size and let it overwrite as necessary. This is usually enough for about a week's worth of logs. If you need more, set accordingly - it gets very chatty in there!
