Remarks

  • You can use this command to find out if a specific user is logged on to a specific terminal server. Query user returns the following information:

    • The name of the user

    • The name of the session on the terminal server

    • The session ID

    • The state of the session (active or disconnected)

    • The idle time (the number of minutes since the last keystroke or mouse movement at the session)

    • The date and time the user logged on

  • To use query user, you must have Full Control permission or Query Information special access permission.

  • If you use query user without specifying <UserName>, <SessionName>, or <SessionID>, a list of all users who are logged on to the server is returned. Alternatively, you can also use query session to display a list of all sessions on a server.

  • When query user returns information, a greater than (>) symbol is displayed before the current session.

  • The /server parameter is required only if you use query user from a remote server.

Examples

  • To display information about all users logged on the system, type:

    query user
    
  • To display information about the user USER1 on server SERVER1, type:

    query user USER1 /server:SERVER1
