When you use the NET USER accountname /DOMAIN command to obtain the last logon information for a user account, you may find that the information about the last logon is incorrect.


This behavior can occur because NET USER contacts only the primary domain controller (PDC) for this information and therefore returns information only about the latest PDC authentication of that user.


To resolve this behavior, use the Usrstat.exe command to obtain user logon statistics.


Usrstat.exe contacts all domain controllers and returns the last-logon information from each. You can compare the dates and times to determine the last user logon. The Usrstat.exe tool is in the Windows NT Server 4.0 Resource Kit.

The NET USER command is designed to modify user accounts, not to return statistics.
