How to disable logon/logoff auditing for windows server 2003

Please see the attachment. My server security log is flooded with logon/logoff events. I must of turned this on a while back and I can't see where to turn it off now. I have checked the default domain controller security settings and default domain security settings but everything is set to not defined. Where can I disable this event logging?

Thanks,

Justin

In group policy - computer settings - local policies - security go to the auditing section.

Disable account logon auditing.

I checked that setting for each GP. They are all set to not defined. Is there a way I pull up which policy is causing the audit?

If I do an RSOP on the DC, it says not defined when I look up the audit policy for account logon.

In addition when you go to the audit settings you will see

"Audit Account Logon events"
"Audit Logon events"

It is confusing why they named them so similar but more info here

Not defined does not mean its not going to happen - you need to set it to DISABLED
