Network Share Monitoring

I have a windows 8.1 system storing backup images on my network.  

Some one or something is resetting the permissions on my backup share folder.  Additionally, the user account that is used for authentication to the backup share is getting locked out the second I re-enable the account.  

I need to figure out the best way to monitor the permission changes and capture the IP address and the user name making the changes. I know I can use local policy to audit, but is there something better.  This windows 8.1 is part of a windows 2008R2 domain.

Thanks very much fro the help!!!

I'm not aware of anything better than the auditing feature.  I would certainly start there.

Has someone changed the password for this account that gets locked out?  Is it possible someone is using that account in the blind to try to access some part of your network and thereby locking the account when they can't guess the password?

I will start there with auditing and see what happens.

I don't know if they changed the password or guessing the password.  I created a new  account with new password, but my guess is the issue will happen again.  I did not change the password for login account for the windows 8.1 machine.  I want tot try to figure out what is happening.  This is the second time.  Any more suggestions would be very welcome!
