    I’m fairly certain there’s a way for me to check to see if a domain admin changed permissions on a file. I just don’t know what to specifically look for. I’m looking through my log files and can’t pin point anything. This is my scenario…

    User A has domain admin rights which was given for her job as a software package admin. This was done prior to me being here and I’m not sure if she still needs it.
    User B is in our Payroll dept and needs access to a certain spreadsheet in a locked down folder.
    I granted User B full access to that folder by putting her in a security group that has full access. I then granted her full access to that specific file. She was able to access it for about a month.

    Two days ago, User B contacts me and says “I no longer have access to that spreadsheet, I get this error (insert permissions error).
    I logged in and granted her access that night.
    She tried to access it last night and got the same error.
    I went and checked permissions and her name is gone from the permissions list.

    I just granted her full access permissions for that file and she can access it as of this point.

    What I think is going on is this; User A is logging in and changing permissions for some reason. (I know the reason but I won’t bore ya’ll with it).

    I’ve got to be able to prove that is what she’s doing. I know it can be done, like I said, I just don’t know what to look for and in what log file.

    Any help, my masters?
