    Is it possible to query a computer account or create a script to see who was
    the last user logged into a computer or generate a history of last logged in
    users. I have a Windows 2003 domain in native mode over 2000 workstations
    and servers total.

  2. Are You interested also in local user logons, in that case use logparser
    to query workstation for specific events

    Don't know if it is possible to do it retrospectively, but we use a logon
    script (batch file) with the following command "echo %computername%
    %username% %date% %time% >>\\servername\logs$\logons\%computername%.txt" -
    this stores a log file for each computer.
