Getting the Effective Audit Policy in Windows 7 and 2008 R2

There’s a great post on the Ask the Directory Services Team blog that explains how to get the effective audit policy in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Although this sounds like a fairly straightforward thing to do, it’s a little more complex than you may think. This relates to the different ways auditing can be applied – legacy auditing (think pre-Windows Server 2008), granular auditing (Windows Vista/Windows Server 2008) and Advanced Audit Policy Configuration (Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2) – coupled with the fact that auditing can be applied at various levels – domain policy, local policy, multiple-local policy, per-user, or using command-line tools. The post can be read here.
