Server 2003 Auditing

Does anyone have the steps to set up auditing on Server 2003 for each time the administrator logs in?

i.e., once the auditing is configured, the security log will log an event id for each time the administrator account tries to log in, whether it is successful or it fails. TIA.

    Brutalnails,



    Do you know if there are any event IDs to look for? Seems like Windows records dozens of events for anything that happens every second.

Windows 2003 Server Login problem


If it is not logging you in it is because the login name or password is wrong (caps lock?) or the account is disabled or locked out or non-existant or you are attempting to log in to a domain that user does not have an account on. Make sure you are trying to log in to the local machine, capitalization is correct and your keyboard isn't inputting multiple characters when your intent is a single one. If you have a different account with administrative privileges, try that one and use it to reset the password on the preferred account.

If you can't log in as a different user, you will need something like ERD commander or http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ with this plugin http://www.bootcd.us/BartPE_Plugin_Details/394/Change-Administrator-Password.html so you can boot from CD and re-set the password for the administrator account. Once you have it fixed, set up a second administrator account so you have a backup account to log in with, that allows you to do administrative things like reset passwords and unlock accounts, just in case.

Domain\administrator has no local admin rights


You may need to edit group policy if this was once in a domain. You may want to try rebooting the machine and logging into the 'LOCAL' machine and see if you have rights that way. Each machine by default has one administrator account but if the server was part of a domain, that right may have been removed. You may need to reset OWNER privileges for all files in the machine.

Remote Login Failure


This message means that the user account you are trying to use does not have rights to log on remotely. You need to go to the server, log on as an administrator at the console. Once logged in, add the user account you want to use to the local "Remote Desktop Users" group.

Shut down services


If you are using Windows XP, follow these steps.

Open your Control Panel, click "Performance and Maintenance", and then go to "Administrative Tools". Go to "Local Security Policy".

Under 'Security Settings' -> 'Local Policies' -> 'Security Options', find "Shutdown: Allow System to be shut down without having to log on" and enable it.

That should take care of it.

Logging on to server


You need to go into administrative tools and look for group policy.

In the local computer policy
Computer Configuration
Windows Settings > security settings > Local policies > user rights assignment. In the right hand pane find the policy for "Allow log on locally" Set the user accounts for those users which are allowed to log on interactively on the server. Be careful you dont lock the administrator account out.
Use in conjunction with the "Deny logon locally policy" if you need to.
Hope this helps
