Currently monitoring forwarded event logs from a domain controller (Running Windows 2008 R2). Trying to use an IT monitoring application called SPLUNK (www.splunk.com
) to do so. Specifically focused on monitoring logon events.Would like to be able to sort logon events by account_name and workstation_name fields.
The issue: When searching through the domian controller's event logs and filtering for logon events, the program is failing to define a workstation name. It often can define an account name, but the problem is that we aren't able to correlate which account name is logging into which workstation name.
Question: Why are most of the "4624" logon events ANONYMOUS LOGON's ? Is there a way to extract these desired fields out of the logs with SPLUNK, or is the data just withheld on the the Windows event logs? If so, how do we make so these fields are not hidden on these logs?
