  • See what computer names have RDP'd to server?

    Is it possible to view a list of all computer names that have used an RDP session to logon to a server?

    On Server 2003, when you go to Task Manager, Users, it shows the Client Name

    Is there a way to show a log of all previous RDP sessions with date/times etc? I would like to know exactly what computers have been accessing the server via RDP


    Thanks

    You could turn on the Terminal Services Session Directory logging service: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/327508

      Thanks mate, I never knew about that feature.

      I have followed the instructions but all that shows in the log file is this...

      NEW INSTANCE
      10252: 14:37:55 PM DISJetRecover() begin
      10252: 14:37:56 PM TSSDIS: Jet error -1811, line 1236, file d:\nt\termsrv\sessdir\dis\tssdis.cpp
      10252: 14:37:56 PM DISJetRecover() end with failure -1811
      10252: 14:37:56 PM g_RepopulateSession is set to TRUE
      10252: 14:37:56 PM DeleteJetFiles() begin...
      10252: 14:37:56 PM DeleteJetFiles() ended...
      10252: 14:38:01 PM Session Directory Active


      I have logged out of the RDP session and have logged back in a few times but the log file stays doesn't update. Any ideas?


      Thanks in advance
