Re: Windows Log

I'm wondering about this too. I was thinking about a solution like this
one, but I have some thoughts:

If you run the script at login time, it is run with user permissions I
believe. So that would mean that you have a server that accepts data
from a user. Wouldn't it be possible for the user, if he figures it out,
to fake information. He could for instance fake the login or logoff by
just sending data to the server (or even running the script, which he
has access to).

Can anyone comment on this? (Don't have much experience with this kind
of thing)

I'm not a expert but couldn't you script something to run everytime
(HKLM...Run or throught LoginScripts) a user logged into a machine to
output the username and machine to a SQL DB or the like...just an
idea. Not sure how big your org is but even a text file something like

echo %username% >> \\UNCPATHTOASERVER\\logininfo.txt
hostname >> \\UNCPATHTOASERVER\\logininfo.txt

This is pretty basic but you get the idea

To continue this topic, I'm faced with the same thing....

The problem is that with all these event id's 672, 673, 540...etc there is still no positive way to say , when a 
user logged on (via cntrl,alt delete) and logged off, as in shutdown or log off.

My goal, is to use syslog or some other form of monitoring to keep records of each employees logon/logoff of a PC 
physically on the network. I've been knee deep into all these event id's and nothing is accurate.

Please help.

There are many types of logins that can be performed in an an AD
environment.  Among these are full desktop logins by a user (aka
interactive login), non-interactive network logins (e.g. mount a
share), computer accounts authenticating to the domain, etc.

I would venture a guess that you don't want to disallow the ability to
log other security events, but want to easily find login events of
some type (see above) without having to wade through the full set of
logged data.  If this is the case, you could simply filter the logs to
show the event id that is specific to the action you are looking to
see.

You could use the built-in "Event Viewer" application for it,
EventCombMT (Google it), one of the resource kit log dumping
utilitities, VBScripts, or just about anything else to export this
info.  Some VBScript examples are below:

I dare say that if you're trying to audit security on a box, you don't
want to hack up the data collection facility, but want to simply get
better use from that data.

My two cetns.

Hi all,

I have a Win2k Server, who is my Domain Controller, and I'd like it to
log only the LOGON/LOGOFF events. I know that there are a whole class
of logon/logoff events, but I´d like to log only when a user logon
into a machine in the domain.

Hope I was clear... thx
