Normally, administrator need to enable auditing for the resource, but in large domain, it is hard to enable all the resource on all the PC, Is there any tool to audit the user's activity in win 2k domain - when, what and where ?

Luxana,

The most diffcult request is,
For example, There are 1000 files or directory in PC, I need to enable the "audit object access" in GPO, then go to each PC, right click each partition/driver | property | security | advanced | auditing | add everyone | select reset all on child object.., there are 200 PCs that I need repeat same setting, Next, they will creat a huge log file on each PC.  Is there any way to simplify this type of job ? I hown this example is kind weird, But I just try to find a way to answer the request from my top level guy, "how do you know which files is accessd by who?", "How many PC this user acces to and What files are accessed by the user?".
