I believe you want to search the windows security logs in the event viewer for Event ID 4624. You could also create a custom view for this by following the instructions in the below link.

Hope this helps.

you can sort the security logs in the event viewer by Event and look for event code 528.

That's laughable. The security log on my rather small domain only goes back 2 days because of all the domain chatter in there. Now that I want to know why it appears that user X accessed the server (and when), it's likely WAY too late. Out of the box, my Unix login logs go back to the beginning of the prior month.

LOL! WHY would a server OS not track logins? LOL!
