I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

I think that if you have auditing turned on then I think you can look in the security log for Event ID 5139.

5139 isn't correct in this.
I found the following list from a few locations, when auditing is turned on.
Open Event viewer and filter Security log to find event id’s (Windows Server 2003/2008-2012):
- 631, 635, 648, 653, 658, 663/4727, 4731, 4754 , 4759, 4744, 4749 – Group created
- 632, 636, 650, 655, 660, 665/4728, 4732, 4756 , 4761, 4746, 4751 – Member added to a group
- 633, 637, 651, 656, 661, 666/4729, 4733, 4757, 4762, 4747, 4752 – Member removed from a group
- 634, 638, 652, 662, 667, 657/4730, 4734, 4758, 4748, 4753, 4763 – Group deleted

I didn't give you enough information.  You want to look for the pair of entries:  5139 and 5136

5139 shows deletion and 5136 shows creation.  When you rename an OU it is actually a 2 step process.
