Everyone, Trying to see events in the security event log for every time I change the rights of a user and it doesn't seem to be working.

I've confirmed that setting the above policy settings in the "default Domain controllers policy" policy are applying to my domain controllers using the "group policy results wizard" and I've also confirmed the settings by running secpol. Please see output below:

I always do a gpupdate /force after I update any policy settings.

But, when I create a new policy, and change a user right, no 4704 events are generated. A search for the affected username in the event log doesn't bring up anything either. To make the change, I create a new policy and link to it at the top of the GPO tree in the Group Policy Management snap-in. Next, I go to Computer Configuration->Policies->Security Settings->Local Policies->User Rights Assignment and change "Act as part of the operating system" so that it's defined, and I add an AD user to the list.

No 4704 event though. All I see is:

 An operation was performed on an object.

 Subject :  Security ID:        ScrubbedDomainName\ScrubbedSourceUserID
    Account Name:       ScrubbedSourceUserID    Account
 Domain:        ScrubbedDomainName  Logon ID:       0x4a9248

 Object:    Object Server:      DS  Object Type:        user    Object
 Name:      CN=scrubbed target user
 name,CN=Users,DC=ScrubbedDomainName,DC=ScrubbedSuffix  Handle ID:      0x0

 Operation:     Operation Type:     Object Access   Accesses:       Control Access
                    Access Mask:        0x100   Properties:     Control Access      {91e647de-d96f-4b70-9557-d63ff4f3ccd8}

 Additional Information:    Parameter 1:        -   Parameter 2:

Which corresponds to the change I made.

The only events before and after are logon and logoff events.

Seeing all sorts of other events such as logon and logoff events though. Something else I should be doing? Something else I should check?
