Hello there,

We wish to monitor changes to privilege active directory security groups. In
order to accomplish this, following auditing has been turned on:

Account Management Events
Audit directory service access

We now receive alerts for every security group that is modified. In reality,
we have like 50 security groups we consider as “privilege” (they are applied
on to critical resources). We wish to receive alerts in Event viewer for
these select 50 security groups and monitor their changes. Please let us know
how to accomplish this. Thank you in advance for your support.

Hi Venkatesh

MS Operation Manager will, if you that worried - try adding the highly
sensitive groups "restrived Groups" under the Computer\Windows\Security
portion of a new GPO you can create. add the groups from AD, add the current
memembers of each of these groups - then link/enforce the policy. If you need
to add a new admin to "domain admins" group, you will need to edit the GPO
and add the member in the policy, then AD will automatically add the member.
If someone does a friendship duty and adds some one to a restricted goup,
they will be removed witin 5 minutes, unless it's added via the GPO

Regards
