software for creating logs on an domain controller

HI, I would like to know if there is a software capable of register (logs) all the activities performed by any user in a domain controller (windows server 2008) related to the administration of users, groups, resources and permissions.

Thanks in advance.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is called Active Directory Auditing. You can enable auditing vary easily. I have created a HowTo with all of the required steps to accomplish this. See the below link.

Once Auditing has been enabled you will need to reference the Security Logs on the domain controllers to see all of the activity. This can be hard to manage without 3rd party software so I  would recommend Active Directory Auditing by Lepide software. See the link below.
