Win2k Server - user account auditing on single account

In a Windows 2000 Domain (native mode), is it possible to setup user account auditing on one single account?  If so how?

I'd like to monitor the domain administrator account usage.

in AD users and computers, open the user account and select security.  then advanced, there is an auditing tab there where you can set the auditing.

You will have to click View, then Check Advanced settings in AD users and computers first.  This will allow you to see the Security tab on the User accounts

Found it.  I didn't have the Advanced settings activated.

I didn't see anything that refered to logging in so I checked everything for success and failure.  I'll wait and check the logs in a bit and see what I can see.  I'll also login to a client using the admin account and see if that posts to the Event Logs.  That's what I'm after, I want to know everytime the domain admin account is used.

Thanks!  I'll let you know what I see in the logs.

you have also to set audit on folders (if you are interested about logging access on files and folders)
for this you have to add the administrators accounts in the audit tab in folder's, files's properties
