Track User and Computer Sessions on Windows Server.

You can use Computer Management to track all connections to shared resources on a Windows Server 2008 R2 system. Whenever a user or computer connects to a shared resource, Windows Server 2008 R2 lists a connection in the Sessions node.

To view connections to shared resources, type net session at a command prompt or follow these steps:
1. In Computer Management, connect to the computer on which you created the shared resource.
2. In the console tree, expand System Tools, expand Shared Folders, and then select Sessions. You can now view connections to shares for users and computers.

The columns for the Sessions node provide the following important information about user and computer connections:
User The names of users or computers connected to shared resources. Computer names are shown with a $ suffix to differentiate them from users.
Computer The name of the computer being used.
Type The type of network connection being used.
# Open Files The number of files the user is actively working with. For more detailed information, access the Open Files node.
Connected Time The time that has elapsed since the connection was established.
Idle Time The time that has elapsed since the connection was last used.
Guest Whether the user is logged on as a guest.
