DC not showing failed logon attempts

I have a domain controller that is 2008 R2 and I can't seem to get it to show the failed login attempts in the eventviewer.  Any suggestions on what I might be missing.   It shows the successful ones ......


Thanks .

Through the "Group Policy Management" you should edit the "Default Domain Controllers Policy" to include failed logon events.

Right click that policy - Choose edit... and navigate to:
Policies --> Windows settings --> Security Settings --> Local Policies --> Audit Policy

The are two relevant definitions overs there:
1) audit account logon events
2) audit logon events

Make sure those include failed as well.
