  1. I want to track all my AD logs also It should give full audit of changes/modifications/deletions made to active directory and can I filter these changes by administrator who made them?
    Any Input would be appreciated

    On the AD Server, locate the log(s) of interest
    • right-click->properties->Security Tab
    • click Advanced button at the bottom
    • on the Auditing Tab click Add
    • insert user id or group id to monitor
    • scroll to find Create Files / Write Data [x] and
    • Create Folders / Append Data [x]

    audit will be in the Event Viewer and there are scripting tools to extract specific events of your choice

    For this I think we can only monitor single user or group user's activity
    what if we have number of computers and over 1500 users in the network Then I need to apply this setting for each user or any other way aground is there ??

    those changes would be on the AD Server itself, not the client systems
