Darn!!! I'm having a brain far*!   Where do I click on to see the users logged into the win2k8 server?  I know i can do query sessions in DOS, but I wanna see the results in the

windows environment..


Am I making sense?



Ya know, this stuff is fascinating, yet irritating

Logged into the a desktop of the server? Look in Task Manager.


Logged into a network client using various server resources? No foolproof/definitive way, but looking in in "Computer management"/"Shared folders"/"Open files" would tell you who has files open (or "Sessions" in the same place will tell you which computers are connected to shared resources).

Yep, task manager (taskmgr.msc) or File manager (fsmgmt.msc) or remote desktop services manager (tsadmin.msc) or use wmic (wmic /node:targetComputername computersystem get username).

Under computer management then under shared folders you have sessions and open files.  Both will tell you who are connected.
