auditpol - to see what is the current setting

when i tried auditpol command as below to see if the "directory service changes" is Yes or No, i only get it was successfully executed.

C:\Users\jimwe>auditpol /set /subcategory:"directory service changes"
The command was successfully executed.

can you check if it is enabled or not from command line? what exactly happened with my command above?

You didn't do anything with that command because you did not add on the switches to change the values.  (/success:enable /failure:enable etc...)

Easiest way (and best because you have a backup) to view all of the settings is to backup all of the settings and then just view them in notepad:

Run from an elevated command prompt.

auditpol /backup /file:auditpolicy.txt

Open in new window
