Windows 7: Recording Failed Login Attempts - Possible?

01 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Recording Failed Login Attempts - Possible?

I've tried doing it as described here but I still only get Audit Successes in my Event Viewer. Not a single "FailureAudit".

And looking for information about this for Windows 7, I couldn't find a single article, forum post or anything mentioning it besides that one I just linked to. So I wonder... does that feature maybe not even exist in Windows 7?

I'm sorry... I didn't read the comments for that article. And what it says right there made it work: "You actually need to enable “Audit Logon Events” for Success,Failure (not Audit Policy Change, as shown in the screenshot)."
