Link Servers to the Group Policy Object in-order to apply desired Audit Policy. The configured Group Policy object can be applied to all desired File Servers by following the options provided below.
Option 1: Linking a Group Policy object to an OU containing desired servers.
Option 2: Add Member Servers via "Security Filtering" to a domain linked GPO.
From the Active Directory Users and Computers Console (ADUC) create a "New Organizational Unit (OU)" in the default Domain.
Add all audit required Member Server objects to this Organizational Unit.
Now link that Organizational Unit to a Group Policy object that has the audit policy "Audit Logon Events" configured in it.
This scenario is applicable for organizations that maintain a separate OU for various Servers.
Create a Group Policy Object for the "Domain"
Configure the audit policy "Audit Logon Events" success/ failure in it.
Add the "Member Servers" (Computer Objects) that require audit into the "Security Filtering" settings of this Group Policy Object .
The Settings in the GPO will only be applied to the computers listed under "Security Filtering" settings of the GPMC.
