Are there any tools or techniques in active directory that show exactly which user and when accessed a file on a file server in an AD environment. I know you get the MAC data but that is not really what we are after as that would only have last accessed, we need a complete log of when and how. Or do auditing features need to have been turned on for there to be any log of when and who accessed the file?

IF auditing is swiched on then these events are recorded in the security log
This is for Win2000 - but Win2003 is identical http://support.microsoft.com/kb/300549
also see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310399 (also applies to 2000/2003)
