Event ID# on Domain Controllers for workstation interactive logon


G

Guest

I read somewhere that DC's running 2003 would log a new event that
specifically indicated a workstation/member-server interactive login. Thus
this would provide a semi-consolidated record of domain users' interactive
logons from non-DC's. I've Googled repeatedly but I'm not finding the
information. Can someone tell me what this event number is?

Thanks Meinholf,

I think what I'm trying to get at specifically is if the DC's are going to
start holding the events for interactive logons in addition to the
workstations.

This is something you would need to enable manually using either a GPO or
the Local Domain Controller Policy. I would suggest to use a separate GPO
under the Domain Controller OU. Keep in mind, this is a lot of additional
data the DCs will be enumerating and can turn into a performance issue.
