Check what PC a user is logged into

P: n/a
Hi All,

I am building a tool for one of our company's service desks, and one
of the functions I'm hoping to add is the ability to enter a username
and find what PC that user is currently logged into.

As AD doesn't store this kind of information, is there any source I
can get this information from?

Thanks,
Nathan Manzi

Not without querying all PC's in the network to see who's actually logged on.

A bit out of scope of this usenet group, but would something like
System Managment Server hold this information?

Nope.
SMS does not hold the dynamic states of the network resources. Logon states are only
available on the WS/Server, note also that each PC on a network can have multple Logon
session active at a moment. Your only option is to query the Logon states of each individual
PC, or have a service running on each PC that publishes it's logon session states to a
management station.
