Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can edit the default domain policy to force domain computers to audit both SUCCESS AND FAILURE “Account Logon Events”, which are AD accounts, as well as “Logon Events”, which are local user accounts.

Local accounts audits are not registered on any DC, only the local computer.

Both of these are found in the same GPO Audit Policy location: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Audit Policy

    Hi,
    You can easily audit a policy on domain for local user via specifying a unique category of security related events. Auditing policy can be implemented by an administrator that suits the security needs of the organization.

    Auditing policy implementation on domain has several steps:-
    1. First log on using an administrator account.
    2. Open the Computer tool and Active directory user.
    3. Right-click ON the container which holding  the domain controller and then click it on Properties.
    4. Click the Group Policy tab, and then click Edit to edit the Default Domain Policy.
    5. In the Group Policy window, expand Computer Configuration, navigate to Windows Settings,         
    6. Select Audit Policy.
    7. Now, double-click Audit Directory Service Access policy and choose to enable or disable      successful or failed access attempts.
    8. At last. Click OK. It will take a few minutes for the change to take effect, and other domain controllers will receive the change at the next regular replication interval.

    Thanks & Regards
