  • Is tihs possible?

    In hyena, Is it possible to find out what users
    in the domain is log in to what machine (by ip address or name)? and vice versa?

    The only way I'm doing now is select the server that user is connected to (usually to home folders), look at
    sessions or open files, and look for the machine name which the users
    is log on to

    Not really, as NT does not have any way to do this. When a user logs on, there isn't any domain-wide indicator where they logged on. You could create a global logon script that everyone would run that would write out the username and machine name to a file. However, you can get this information on a computer-by-computer basis by using Hyena's "View Logged On Users..." options for a computer. But this will only work for one computer at a time.

    If you want to scan an entire network, you can use PsLoggedOn from:

    This uses the same technique as Hyena, but scans all computers. It could take some time to "find" someone that you are looking for. Other than these solutions, you would have to load some agent or service to capture this information on each domain controller.

      I forgot to mention that you can select multiple computers in Hyena's right window and use this function. Then sort on username and see wherer they are logged in at. It still has to collect this information from each computer, so you won't want to do this for 1,000 computers at one time, but for a few it will save a lot of time.
