We have expanded and acquired a couple of companies recently and due to elevated access for some people I want to audit/log all AD changes.

Was just wondering what products anyone else uses. There are lots out there but trying to get a general feel for any popular ones.

I currently use AD Audit Plus in my environment which is a great product and it allows you to audit every aspect of Active Directory. They do have a 30 day free trial which is great for testing. This is completely web based so you can access this from any machine you are on in your domain.

You can reference Mahesh's link above.

Have looked at a few including Lepide (thanks Allen) and have gone for AD Audit Plus so have split points between Mahesh & Will. Many Thanks.
