Maybe latest service pack is a solution for my problem?

Thank you!

Grabar,

I believe that the user information is collected by the "Hardware Inventory Client Agent".

It would be worth checking the frequency of the inventory schedule, I think by default it has a long period between scans.
Also check your Site Maintenance tasks, you could have a task clearing out your missing information.

You are 2 service packs behind, but I don't think there was an issue with earlier versions and the information you're missing.

There is a section on the board for future SMS queries - Distribution>>SMS

Hope this helps,

dunnpy is right - it is HW inventory. If PC is failing to collect this information, there could be issues with WMI on the workstation. Which OS are you running on the workstations? What are your hw inventory schedules? Do you get other info, like "last boot time" updated?

All of my clients works on Windows XP. I have other HW inventory information - for example installed software, OS version, S/N of PC, etc.
For about 70% of desktops I don't have information about last loged user. I run HW inventory every 2-3 days.

edit:

Ok, so maybe someone can move my topic into SMS forum? Thanks :]

Grabar,

A quick Google found the following:

The Microsoft answer is a hotfix and the bottom link suggests increasing the HeartBeat frequency.

Have a look and see what you can work out - incidentally, I did read that SP3 gave a more reliable method of determining the user of a machine. I'm running SP3, but have a separate asset management toolset that we use for inventory/user/machine information - so I can't really advise on the reliability of the answers found.

Hope this helps,
