  • Logged On Users

    When I get the Properties for a specific computer and click on the System tab, there is a section that lists the "Logged On Users" for the computer (includes the logon domain and logon server).

    Where does Hyena get this information from?

    I see many users in this list, but the machine is actually logged off.

    Try right-clicking on the computer and choosing View Logged on Users and let us know if that looks correct.

      When I try that method, I only see the following:

      \\PV24006 NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE 1/18/2005 9:46:51 AM
      \\PV24006 NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE 1/18/2005 9:46:50 AM
      \\PV24006 NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 1/18/2005 9:46:45 AM

      But, using the other method, I see about 8 usernames from one of our domains as all being logged in. There's no one at the workstation currently.

        Those are service accounts and such which is normal. The other function I believe reads from the registry, so Windows just must not be clearing properly when users log off.

          We're sproadically having troubles with slow logins so if you do come up with where in the registry the info comes from, I'd appreciate getting that info.

          Thanks so much for the quick responses. Your product and support are absolutely excellent!

            The results of the screen that you are looking at comes from a Windows function named 'NetWkstaUserEnum'. There are some notes in Microsoft's documentation about the results of this function, so please search MSDN or MIcrosoft's website for 'NetWkstaUserEnum' and read the information for the API.

            Let us know if you have any questions.
