Get-UalServerUser

Gets UAL records for a server per user.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByName
Get-UalServerUser [-ActivityCount <UInt32[]> ] [-AsJob] [-ChassisSerialNumber <String[]> ] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-FirstSeen <DateTime[]> ] [-LastSeen <DateTime[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Username <String[]> ] [-UUID <String[]> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-UalServerUser cmdlet gets User Access Logging (UAL) records for client requests, by user, for services on a server. Use the CimSession parameter to run the cmdlet on a remote server.

This cmdlet organizes information by user. For each user that accesses a service on a server, the cmdlet returns a record that specifies the user, the chassis serial number for the server, and Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) for the server. The record also includes the first time the client accessed the service, the most recent time the client accessed the service, and the total number of times the client accessed the service.

You can specify parameter values to narrow the records that this cmdlet returns. For instance, you can get records for only a specified user.

For more information about UAL, see the User Access Logging Overview topic in the TechNet library at http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh849634.aspx.

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
