Symptom

You want an easy way to count the logged on users on a terminal server from the command line

Cause

none

Solution

If you want to count the logged on ICA sessions on a terminal server you can use the quser command. This command shows you the users logged on but you will have to count them yourself. A relatively easy way to find out how much users are currently on your server you can use the find command with the /N parameter. This will not show you the right result! If you use it twice, the second output will show you the right result!

e.g.

quser|find /i "ica"|find /i "ica" /N

if you would just use

quser|find /i "ica" /N

Your result will show the lines where ICA has been found.

Just try

quser|find /i "ica"|find /i "ica" /N

and you will understand what I mean.
