Option 2

  1. Crete a logon script on the required domain/OU/user account with the following content:
    echo %date% , %time%, %computername%, %username% , %sessionname%, %logonserver% > > \\SERVER\SHARENAME$\LOGOFF.LOG

2. Create a logoff script on the required domain/OU/user account with the following content:

echo %date% , %time%, %computername%, %username% , %sessionname%, %logonserver% > > \\SERVERSHARENAME$LOGOFF.LOG

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