How to require a login reason on Windows Server 2003?

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
On Windows servers, when you try to shut down it will request a reason explaining why you have chosen to do so.  I would like to know whether there are any similar utilities to ask for a reason when an administrator logs into a Windows Server (via RDP for example).  We are looking for this to help provide a better audit trail of our activities.
