Security Event Log | Security Group Management Report

The Security Group Management enables you to scan the consolidated log database for Audit Security Group Management events. This report is typically used by compliance and audit professionals while auditing domain controllers and stand-alone servers.

Server Manager includes two methods to report Audit Security Group Management events:
