I need to know how to log users and admins activity on Windows, like auditd does on Linux. After searching, the only thing I found was this Audit account log-on events policy option for Windows 7.

Is there some standard used for Windows servers and workstations?


The logging options available in Windows run pretty deep, so choose what you want and set your policies appropriately.

To give you a flavour of what options there are (and are recommended) have a look at the Audit Policy Recommendations.

    So no specific tool, everything is available inside Windows itself and it is just a matter of configuration? – lalebarde Oct 4 '18 at 12:04
