Security Event Log Success Logons Reports

The Success Logons Reports enable you to scan the consolidated log database for various successful logon Event IDs. 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 successful Windows logins:

This report is supported on all locales.
