Is there an easy way from the domain controller to find out the computer name that a domain user last logged into?

You can use a logon script to save the data somewhere (like the Description field at the computer or a file to a network folder which contains the computer name and username)

Or using third-party utilities that scans your computers and displays a list of logged users.
