I had a request for a list of people who accessed a terminal server. Basically, an argument over use.
There is a log file which could help in such matters. Bring up Computer Management and drill your way down to it. The path is:
System Tools/Event Viewer/Applications and Services Logs/Microsoft/Windows/TerminalServices-LocalSessionManager
The log you need is called Operational. When you access it, it will be trough the Event Viewer. This is ok for a quick check or simply seeing the last time logged in. More detail would require using the LOG file. Not going to do that at this time as this was a “Quick and Dirty” need. If there is a need for a better report, I will update this….

We started playing around with HP Insight. We worked our way through the install without reading the documentation which made for an adventure. Why you may ask? Documentation is for IBM PC people. Wait was that my outside voice?….Dang. I am not that old! It’s from my Mac experience. Yea that’s it….seriously now.
We reached a point where it was time to login but the logins were not working? Being used to Network gear, iLo, Drac; the usual question of “What is the default login” was raised.
Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the obvious and sometimes this is aided by the way the screen was designed.
The default login is whatever account you used to run the install. The not so obvious piece is the domain name if you are on a domain. Simply enter:
<DOMAIN>\<userid> and the password
The local administrator group is a default and if you added anybody during the install, they will work as well.
As always, have to mention sources for information.
