    we need to audit users activity on particular camputers. Lets say I have an
    incident for the particular computer. I know it's IP, from DNS I can found
    uot its name. But what else I need is to find users who was using that
    computer during some time. I have enabled "Audit account logon events" in GPO
    on my Defoult domain Controllers Policy, but I cant see users account that
    used that computer. This is my security log in DC:

    thank you Meinolf for information,

    I am affraid about security because user will have write access to this
    file. Whatactually i nned is:

    I enabled "Audit account logon events" on my DCs. I am colected events from
    DCs to SCOM audit databases. How can I get information about user logon
    activity on specific PC. Microsoft say that event 672 (ticket log) does not
    guaranty successful user logon so as i undesrtand you need to look at 673
    (service ticket log) event, else if authentication is used by NTML I need to
    look to event 680, so where finally I have to look ?

    Using "Forensic_-_All_Events_For_Specified_Computer" I get just information
    for my DCs and not for PC's that user was loged on?

    So is there any easy way to get user logon activity on PC?

  5. Hello aurimas,

    If you use the link in my previous posting, read it and run the script you
    get the information.

    Best regards

    Hello, Meinolf,

    using this script during user logon we have to give him write permissions on
    that script and this is big security issue, so thats why using security is
    better, but i can not find right events to track logon activity in computers,

  7. Hello aurimas,

    The user needs right permission to a folder defined in the script where you
    can save all the output's. Not to the script itself, so if you create a hidden
    share the user wan't see or find it.

    Best regards
