AD User Account created by Serverrname$


  • I was doing an investigation, I wanted to know who created an AD account. From the Logs, the creator is shown as the the name of our Exchange Server plus a dollar symbol. Why is it so? I want to know which Administrator created the account.

    My infrastructure is Windows 2008 R2 Single Forest Single Domain with Exchange 2010 

    Why is it shown the Servername with a dollar symbol?

    Is there anything I should do to find out the actual Administrator account which created the AD account?

    I did a lot of search for a solution, but couldn't find any.  Your help is much appreciated.

    Thank you,
