Hi,

#1
every user in our domain has home folder. When someone is trying to acces others home folder they of course get acces deny error. How could I log those events?

#2
How could I define that passwords should be at least 12 characters, they should be changed every 3 months and using previous passwords is prohibited for at least one year.

#3
When user tries to log on domain three times with wrong password the account is locked.

20 points each.

Dear hafka,
My answers are below

Q1 : You need enable the auditing for Object access Success and Failure. Then you can check the same from eventlog-->security
Q2: You need to do this in Default domain level policy in Account policy section. if you don't want the user to use same pwd for one yr then keep the pwd history as 4
Q3: Keep the bad pwd count to 3 in the account policies

Cheers!
