I have this code:
$machine = 'AnyPC'$computerSystem = Get-WMIObject -class Win32_ComputerSystem -ComputerName $machine$computerName = $computerSystem.name$model = $computerSystem.model$LoggedUser = $computerSystem.UserName$LoggedUser
Now, this code seems to work fine, I can change AnyPC to many different machines where I know who is logged on and it returns the correct user. But I've now come across 2 machines where it returns a users name who does Not even have a profile on the machine. How accurate is this key? I have a larger script that depends on this data being 100% accurate and it does not appear to be.
The problem is that more that one user can be logged onto a system. The MSDN documentation tells you what to expect.
UserNameData type: stringAccess type: Read-onlyQualifiers: MappingStrings ("Win32API|System Information Functions|GetUserName")
Name of a user that is logged on currently. This property must have a value. In a terminal services session, UserName returns the name of the user that is logged on to the console—not the user logged on during the terminal service session.
