What about a central wtmp file/database?
It should be easy to collect all connects from samba clients to wtmp
(IIRC about samba features)

It should also not be that hard to store wtmp information from linux
machine in a central manner. (as you only have to collect the per
TS and WS).

Just now I have now pratical idea how to implement it, but maybe
others jump on this track.
