Is there a way to pull reports from active directory to show when users are
logging to the network?

There's nothing like statistics about when (time of day) users log on to
machines in the domain. There's some rough info about when they logged
on in last but no tracking of user logons.

Cheers,

Well, AD only stores the data of the last successful logon. You'd have
to do something to it manually. I could imagine a logon script that
would write the current timestamp to a file with the user's name -- or
into a database and you pull that information off there and generate the
report.

Cheers,
Florian

You can use JiJi Active Directory Reports for fetching real last logon
report from Active Directory.

You can find more details here http://www.jijitechnologies.com

I downloaded a trial of their software to test out. I have noticed that I
have a few users that we have for misc things that dont login and they show
the last logon date as 12/31/1600. Any idea why it whould show that date for
a user that is disabled and has not logged on?

Thanks

For users who never logged on, the lastlogon attribute is set as 0x0
in AD. When this value is converted to DateTime for reporting, it is
shown as 12/31/1600. But it must be shown as "Never logged on", since
the shown date is not valid. I think you are using "All Users" report,
instead use "Recently logged on users" report.

The lastLogon attribute represents the date as the number of 100-nanosecond
intervals since 12:00 AM January 1, 1601. If the user has never logged on,
lastLogon has a value of 0 (zero), which represents this date. If the date
is adjusted for the local time zone, it could becom December 31, 1601.
However, the zero date is 12:00 AM January 1, 1601. It means "never".
