How can I determine the username of the person who added a computer to the domain.

I have a computer that showed up in Active Directory, I have 10 users who have the delegated right to add computers to the domain. This PC was not registered correctly (we ask that a description be included and that the PC object be added to the proper OU). Everyone is telling me that they did not do it. Where can I find the audit trail of who added this PC to the domain?

it the computer showed up on Active Directory....look for the user of the computer.

you can view your logs in Event Viewer
If you open AD Users and computers > click View > advanced features
Now browse to the computer in question > right click > properties > security tab
You will see a list of groups and users.
The first 6 or so entries are all groups. The first username you come to in the list will
be the person who added that computer
