Working with History
 
From the History node or an individual computer’s History node, the complete record of all of the actions that have been taken for each discovered computer can be viewed and tracked.
 
When performing any action on a computer, a summary of the event is recorded under the History node with the date and time of the action and an indication of whether the action was successful. 
For example, the History node records when the computer's environment was analyzed, fixed issues, refreshed computer information, deployed software, and joined a domain.
 
To see more details about any historical event, select the event, right-click, then click Properties. Click the Trace tab to display log file details about individual operations.
