Morning Guys n Gals,
Is there anyway for me to be notified when any of the following has occurred
for a specific user?
-Membership in a AD security group changes for particular users
-A group or user with specific permissions is added or removed from another
account

-The allowed / denied settings on for a particular user or group is changed.

Nik

Nik,

You can use auditing of your DCs for account changes for success and
failure. It will populate the actions taken by your admin into the Security
log on each DC.

However, to notify you, would require a third party tool. The following are
two that I found searching for "active directory notify account changes."

Active Directory Alerts
www.ManageEngine.com/ADAuditplus Track desired changes. Be alerted /
notified on undesired changes.Trial

That's one of the limitations with the built-in tools. The third party tools
are also on the pricey side, but they offer much more than just
notification. They may help in other areas, too.

Good luck!

With 2008 and better you can create scheduled tasks to use a logged event as
a trigger to fire off a task. It's rather limited but combined with a
freeware tool like blat, you could rig up something for a cheap
notification. The problem is going to be using eventlogging to get granular
enough with your needs.

Works well for some things, but getting granular enough for the OP's purpose
may be challenging. Passing event log particulars to the notification
message is also a pia. But, getting notified a specific event type has
occured isn't too difficult. Reminds me I need to see if it's any more
robust in R2....

R2 has additional new features, but it's not as granular as one would like
it to be. It still opens the door for third party developers to get a piece
of the action. :-)
