Active Directory Logs ??

Does Active Directory have a log of moves, deletions and etc???

If so where is it and if not does anyone know how I can track that kind of information?

Thank You

There are transaction log files along with the database located by default in \windows\NTDS, but it's not a simple open it and see what happened.

I would suggest something like:  http://www.scriptlogic.com/Active_Directory_Auditing.asp  Active Administrator from scriptlogic for doing this.

That's what I was saying, the log files are used by the AD database.  They aren't going to be regular "text" inside and you can't just open them that I'm aware of.
