Monitoring server logons

I need to monitor when people logon to a Windows server through RDP or from the console.
How can I do this?

Pretty simple:
use the local policy or GPO to configure auditing

For local:
gpedit.msc
browse to Computer Config\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Audit Policy

Enable Auditing for "Audit Logon Events".

Any logons will then be logged in the security log.

The boxes are greyed out.
This is a domain controller, does this matter?

Yes, that does matter.
In this case you can do the same in the "Default Domain Controllers" Policy in Active Directory.
