i was wondering if there is a way to see what pc(by the host name ) are logged into the domain

my old boss when deploying pc's would just use the generic username "user "  so we had like 100+ pc all logged in under the username "user" we took alot of our PC's off the domain but did not get all of them and rather then walking all around and checking is there a CMD or powershell command or a script or anything that can be ran to eaisly tell us what pc's are connected to the domain 


if we can get all pc's by host name that are connected to the domain it would save us the time and energy walking around to all the pc's in the building (450+pc's)

in a text file that would be great 

if there was a way to take it farther and have it be like 

salespc1(host name ) is logged in with "user "(what ever domain account it is logged into ) that would be even better


iv tried the following script 

net view /domain:********>> C:\PM\domainpc's.txt
it gave a list of pc's but some of them im sure are not (or atleast should not be ) on the domain anymore 
thanks in advanced for any help

The first thing that came to my mind was using NET Session or WMIC commands.


Here is a nice website with all the useful Administrator commands & scripts..




Credits to them.

You can use the command (net view | find /i "\\" | sort) but network discover needs to be enabled on the client nodes.

Also note, that VLAN's wont allow broadcasts and same goes as Routers unless you have enabled them.


To get a list of domain users you can always use the command (wmic useraccount where disabled="false" get /all /format:list), this will display only active accounts and of course you can echo that to a txt file if need be.

Also WMIC uses htables as well if you wanted to make it a Table format.

That command would be (wmic /output:"Useraccounts.html" useraccount where disabled="false" get /all /format:htable.xsl)
