I would like to know why, when I look at the Event Viewer and then look at Success Audit, I am not showing any users. In the user line it only shows N/A. How do I get the server to log users, failures and successes when logging into a server?

Hi

Is this for a server as part of a domain.  If it is you need to modify the policy of the server centrally, if it is a standalone machine, you will need to fundamentally do the same thing, just modify the local policy instaed of the group policy.  The location for the setting is the same. Open secpol.msc (standalone) Navigate to Security Settings > Local Policies > Audit Policy this will list all the Security Settings you want to log, double click on each entry you require and select auditing of the events of Success or Failure.

By default, those events should be logged. You might want to keep an eye out for interlopers on your network, as this is a common thing to disable for intruders.

This might be a good time to review admin memberships.

Is this a member server or a DC?
