hey all,
i am on a mixed OS network consisting of the following:
2000 sever, Win XP Pro, NT 4.0, and 2003 server. i wasnt sure where to post this question, but if you feel that it should be posted in a different location let me know and i will repost.

I have a question that i hope someone can help. the issue is i need to find out who is logged in to several of the computers in my office without having to go to those computers. te**net suggested using Pstools, so i downloaded form microsoft and ran at the cmd promt. see below for cmd line and results.
C:\pstools>psloggedon \\computername

loggedon v1.33 - See who's logged on

Users logged on locally:
4/8/2008 7:51:35 AM doaminname\username
Error: could not retrieve logon time
computername\username

No one is logged on via resource shares.

where computername is the name of the computer that i am trying to find out who is logged in. as you see, it list who is logged in at the time, but it only seems to work if i run it on the station i am physically at. when i try to run it accross the network it errors see below:

C:\pstools>psloggedon \\computername

loggedon v1.33 - See who's logged on

Error opening HKEY_USERS for \\computername
Unable to query resource logons

any ideas, or anyone know of a tool that can be used to see who is logged in to a system .
thank you
