We have a workstation using Win7 on a LAN with a domain. On that workstation we set up some network shares.

Can we find who used (user name and/or computer name) and when the shares?

Note that we know about Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Open Files. We don't want to see so much real-time who's using the shares but we are interested more in a logging solution, ideally interpreting / using the data from Win7's Event Viewer.

To monitor access to shared objects you need to enable auditing on the computer providing the shared objects.
