Windows 2008r2 - Who created the shares?

Is there a way to tell who created shares on a server?  If so, how?  We have some rouge admins that share with the everyone group instead of authenticated users.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you have auditing enabled you can search the event logs to see modifications made to objects (Audit object access).

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I know its a shot in the dark but I use this on a couple file servers.

It does full auditing of file servers and shares. Its not free and wont give you any historical information, but if it is something you want to manage in the future - well worth the money!

Not necessarily. Create a filter and configure the following:

Logged: your timeframe you want query
Event sources: Microsoft Windows security auditing
Task category: File System

This should save you some time.
