How to track users logon/logoff using a script

   How to track users logon/logoff
The Auditing

Option 1:
1.      Enable Auditing on the domain level by using Group Policy:
Computer Configuration / Windows Settings/ Security Settings/Local Policies / Audit Policy
There are two types of auditing that address logging on,they are Audit Logon Events and
Audit Account Logon Events.
Audit “logon events” records logons on the PC(s) targeted by the policy and the results appear in the Security Log on that PC(s).
Audit “Account Logon”Events tracks logons to the domain,and the results appear in the Security Log on domain controllers only.

2.      Crete a logon script on the required domain/OU/user account with the following content:
                                                                                                       
echo %date% , %time%, %computername%, %username% , %sessionname%, %logonserver% > >

3.      Crete a logoff script on the required domain/OU/user account with the following content:
                                                                                                       
echo %date% , %time%, %computername%, %username% , %sessionname%, %logonserver% > >

NOTE : Please be aware that unauthorized users can change the scripts,due to the requirement that
                the SHARENAME$ will be writeable by users.

Option 2:

Use WMI/ ADSI to query each domain controller for logon/logoff events.
