Hi, Based on the research, these event IDs of Active Directory user account management is as followed. Event ID Action 4720 Create a user account 4724 Reset an account's password 4738 Change user account 4722 Enable a user account 4725 Disable a user account 4726 Delete a user account 4781 Change user account name You may see the detail information of event ID in the Event Viewer. Eventvwr -> Windows Logs -> Security Please note: the "Audit account management" should be enabled with a GPO which is linked to the corresponding container. Steps: Open the GPMC -> Create a GPO -> Edit the GPO -> expand "Computer Configuration" -> expand "Policies" -> expand "Windows Settings -> expand "Security Settings" -> expand "Local Policies" -> "Audit Policies" -> enable "Audit account management" with "Success" and "Failure" Please reset the computer to refresh the group policy and let it apply afterwards. Hope it helps.

Hi David thanks for you reply. I read before that these events should be logged by default. When i checked the GPO , all are not defined yet, but when i run this command : auditpol.exe /get /Category:* i can see that some sub categories are enabled. but when i create a new user the event id 4720 is not logged !! If i enabled the GPO , it would then be the same as Win2k3. I want to benefit from the new auditing of win2k8. can you help me in this please.

Do you have also a list of events ID for Computers. For example, Joining a machine to Domain, reset machine and so on. Thanks in advance.

I am getting more interested in the events, can you also write down the events for GPO. for example creating new GPO, changing GPO, linking GPO , Deleting GPO and so on . Thank u very much.
