Experts,

What is the best practice to determine who made permission changes to an AD object? I know the account and have a general time frame of when the chance was made.

Thank you very much!

Apart from the auditing, you can use third party tools like Quest and Ntewrix to find out WHO changed WHAT, WHEN, and WHERE to list additions, deletions, and modifications made to Active Directory users, groups, computers, OUs, group memberships.
