How I can get date wise user login report from Windows server 2003 active directory. I have also Ad Manager Plus for reporting. Is there any way to get this report please

You can query active directory for all user accounts and return their lastlogon and lastlogontimestamp. However getting an accurate report will probably not be possible. You would need to query each domain controller and get the latest date.
lastlogon is recorded on on the domain controller that authenticated the user and you will likely have multiple domain controllers. lastlogontimestamp is a value of the last logon date that gets replicated to all domain controllers but the default time for
that to happen is 14 days.

I dont know the capabilities of AD Manager Plus, but my adgetrest and adgetval programs will retrieve the values for lastLogon from each domain controller and display the most recent value for each user. See
The lastLogonTimestamp attribute being updated every 14 days by default renders it largely useless. It needs to be updated and replicated at logon.
