Are there any tools or techniques or best practices for managing and controlling change on windows servers.  I am concerned that not all domain administrators in my domain are following my requirment that ALL changes be documented in a change document for each server.  I have noticed some bad wholesale security changes.

How can I find out when/by whom AD, File Security, and/or Configuration changes were made?

Is there software for tracking/auditing this?

Thank you.

PS - I have an SBS 2003 SP1 domain with 10 member servers and 60 users (all XP Pro).

You can enable auditing to track who changes what.  It's important to test these settings carefully though, as auditing too many things can cause performance problems.
