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

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
