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

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.

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!
