PowerShell: Get logged on user remotely

Ever need to determine who is logged in to a remote computer?  I found myself frequently using the Sysinternals “psloggedon” utility.  Nothing wrong with this utility and it continues to work on modern OS’s however a single line of PowerShell code can accomplish the same task: (Of course this command requires administrative rights on the remote computer.  ;-))

Get-WmiObject Win32_ComputerSystem -ComputerName ComputerName | select username



Check out the Sysinternal TechNet site.  Still some handy tools:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/
