Computer Management Access without Admin privilages

Posted on 2007-10-09

Hi Guys

We've got a member of staff who needs to be able to see who's accessing the Access database on our server.
She did have Admin privilages which enabled her to use computer management from her pc to the server to see open files, sessions etc and find out who's using the database.
We have installed a new server and company policy now has taken the admin privilage off her.
Is there a way in Windows server 2003 or a third party app that will enable us to let her see who's accessing the database withough giving her admin access?

Many Thanks

    ahh pretty much most basic server functions.....but you can always lock it down by not letting her rdp in, which helps limit, and mybe give her a customised mmc to manage the server :)
