I have a large ad forest and discovered that someone deleted an OU containing many user objects. I have recovered the objects with an authoritative restore...

Can anybody tell me how to hunt down who deleted this OU. Is this possible or would I have to have had some kind of object auditing on???

Hmm that could be painful, looks like I need to take a look at delegation for specific tasks and keep only a few able to do this.

thanks
