On an A/D network,  15 server ---  with several different administrator levels (administrators and then Domain adminstrators).  I have noticed that admins for H/R seems to have access to my server.  How can I track or trace -- where they accessed or looked on my server in the Event logs?

I think you must turn on Server Auditing to track this kind of information and it is not available if you have not got it turned on at this point.

If the various administrators are members of the administrators group, they can go anywhere they please and look at whatever they wish.

The must be a means to track who has logged on,( maybe not what they have done),  if they installed some software and deleted something.  I will check the server auditing

You can look in the terminal services section of server admin to see who is logged on but you need auditing to see who did log on and what they touched.
