Configuring Advanced Auditing Welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching a lesson on Configuring Advanced Auditing. Now when it comes to auditing I will tell you, first of all the idea behind auditing, it's the idea of just keeping track of what's going on in your network environment. And the second thing I'll tell you is that auditing is not new to Windows Server 2012. In fact, it is one of the oldest and most original features that exists in all Windows Server operating systems. If you go all the way back to the days of Windows NT we had auditing, and the auditing was quite thorough, even back then. So I guess if you're a believer of the whole if it ain't broke don't fix it, well, there you go, we've had the same basic methodology throughout all Windows Server operating systems. So what I want to do is let's just jump right in to our Windows Server 2012 operating environment, and well, let's see what it looks like. Okay, so here we are on a Windows Server 2012 computer. This happens to be the one that's called NY-DC-1, this is the original domain controller that we created for the globomantics. local domain. We've used throughout this course and I've used it pretty much throughout any and all Windows Server 2012 courses here at TrainSignal, and if you want to follow along I will tell you, you don't have to be set up the exact same way I am, all you need is a domain controller. And the reason you need a domain controller is because auditing is managed through Group Policy, and that's why we're at a domain controller right now. So let me go ahead and jump to the Start screen, so I'll hit the Start button on my keyboard, and here in the Start screen you'll see I have Group Policy Management.
