I would request some help on finding a user on a terminal session (like Citrix). I've gone through most of the questions asked on "Terminal Session" on this forum. Unfortunately, nothing really helped me :(

I tried searching for get-PSterminalsessions (http://psterminalservices.codeplex.com) but this module is not loading after I follow the steps as given. I'm tried it on Win 7 and as well as on 2008 R2.

When I try using invoke-expressions -command "Quser xyz" it does not return anything.

  • When you do Import-Module PSTerminalServices, what error do you get?

  • I get this error " Import-Module : The specified module 'PSTerminalServices' was not loaded because no valid module file was found in any module directory."

  • But I see them in the Module folders, on my profile and programfiles.

try this from the powershellcommunity.org script repository:

Function Get-ComputerSession {
    Retrieves all user sessions from local or remote server/s
    Retrieves all user sessions from local or remote server/s. Requires query.exe in order to run properly.
.PARAMETER computer
    Name of computer/s to run session query against.              
    Name: Get-ComputerSession

Get-ComputerSessions -computer "server1"

This command will query all current user sessions on 'server1'.    

    DefaultParameterSetName = 'session',
    ConfirmImpact = 'low'
            Mandatory = $True,
            Position = 0,
            ValueFromPipeline = $True)]
Begin {
    $report = @()
Process { 
    ForEach($c in $computer) {
        # Parse 'query session' and store in $sessions: 
        $sessions = query session /server:$c
            1..($sessions.count -1) | % {
                $temp = "" | Select Computer,SessionName, Username, Id, State, Type, Device
                $temp.Computer = $c
                $temp.SessionName = $sessions[$_].Substring(1,18).Trim()
                $temp.Username = $sessions[$_].Substring(19,20).Trim()
                $temp.Id = $sessions[$_].Substring(39,9).Trim()
                $temp.State = $sessions[$_].Substring(48,8).Trim()
                $temp.Type = $sessions[$_].Substring(56,12).Trim()
                $temp.Device = $sessions[$_].Substring(68).Trim()
                $report += $temp
End {            
  • Thanks for the script. I shall check this and update you in a day or so.
