    Can you expand that? What is it you really want to know?
    Is it what netdom tells you? that the computer is online and that it's got
    a secure channel connection?

  3. Active Directory does not keep track of which computers or users are
    authenticated to the domain.

    Hi Bildos
    Here's the thing, the client authenticates against the DC get its Kerberos
    ticket and is left by its own. The AD doesn't maintain records for cuirrent
    active connections.
    Now if you want to now when some client logged to the DC you can use some
    tools that helps you out with that:
    Limit Login Attempts With LimitLogin

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/technetmag/issues/2005/05/UtilitySpotlight/?related=y

    You can also register the acctinfo.dll and a new tab will be added to the
    user properties with details about logon time, etc...
    Account Lockout and Management Tools
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...9C-91F3-4E63-8629-B999ADDE0B9E&displaylang=en



    Or



    if you want to know where some client is logged on you migh want to try the
    PsLoggedOn (MS Sysinternals):

    You can use PsLoggedOn from MS Sysinternals to check which machine a given
    user is logged on.

    PsLoggedOn -l Jorge

    Will return something like

    Domain\Jorge logged onto Wkst01 locally.

    I hope that the information above helps you.
    Have a Nice day.
