How it´s possible to find out, who put a user on a WS 2008 R2 server to a local group?

Sometimes I´m wondering, why is this user on this system in this group. I think, the easiest way is to ask the guy who did it :-)

Thank you in advance!

IT should have a change control policy and ticketing system that documents all changes and why. Easier said than done, but works. – TheCleaner May 4 '12 at 12:25

You can audit account creation, change, deletion, etc. with the native auditing capabilities of Windows Server systems.
