Hi all,

I need to check to see who last modified a certain user object within AD. I know by default it shows the date and time but i need a user name.

    Unless you have Directory Service Access auditing turned on, this information will not be available. If you have this turned on, it will be recorded in the Security log of the DC that recorded the change.
