You will have to install the Nsure audit pack. Download the audit starter pack here:

From the App Note on how to install and configure, it looks like this would start logging.  There are no existing logs to check if I want to go backwards 1 week from today  to check times and who accessed certain files on Novell servers???

Yes, indeed.

Logging all access is an intensive process. If logging everything was a default operation the logs would fill all available space in a couple of months.
However, if you want to know who last changed a file you can check the owner. Usually (e.g. when editing a Word document) the new document is automatically owned by the editor.
