Hi,

From exchange or AD is there any way to find who has changed the Alias names of some users?
We have exchange 2007 and Win 2003 AD.

Is there any way to know this change.Or atleast the date it was done.

Do you mean a software?
Or the Audit.

Will the inbuilt audit if enabled can get these details?

With software, Auditing does not go right down to that level. Quest i know make software that will monitor AD and log all changes made to accounts etc.

Nope it will not work retrospectivly and it's pretty expensive anyway.

Nope you cant do that retrospectively.
And quest is expensive.

You can try Event sentry, which has a sarbanes oxley compliance module to track account changes.
Costs $85
