Disabled accounts getting re-enabled

Hi,

My requiremnet is to monitor/alert when a disabled account gets re-enabled. It's Windows 2008 AD in our environment . This is what I  did.......

When an account gets disabled its gets added to an Active list.  Idea is to crosscheck this Active list when an account gets re-enabled and send an alert.

But Windows 2008 generates Event ID 4725 when an account is re-enabled ( A user account was changed). Same event is generated when any attribute of a user account is modified . So I'm not able to use this event ID 4725 in my filter condition to compare with disabled Activelist.

Any idea of how this can be dealt?

Re: Disabled accounts getting re-enabled

I'm currently working on the same type of alert.  My rule is being tested but i dont think its working properly.

I've noticed that Account Enabled events dont have the user id.  I'm trying to correlate the event with an account changed event.  I think the SID of the source account should link the two events:  1)Account Enabled and 2)Account Changed.

Its still a work in progress and will post when I have more information.
