Each server maintains its own event logs. There is no domain central database for this. In Windows2000, when Event Viewer is open, right-click on "Event Viewer - Local". You will get an option to connect to a different server. You can then view the logs for that server. Your event viewer will default to the last connection you made the next time you open it, so you might want to return to the local logs before you close it. You can also do this in NT4, usiing the "Select Computer" option in the "Log" menu of Event Viewer. It might be possible to create a shortcut that points to a different server on startup (perhaps using the Start In setting of the shortcut properties, but I haven't tried this. If this works, you'd need ten shortcuts, one for each server.

There is no way to do this out of the box, however there are third-party applications that will provide the solution that you are looking for. One such product is Event Log Monitor. (http://www.sunbeltsoftware.com/product.cfm?id=533)

there's another solution. if you have ms sms server 2.0 installed and you have an snmp monitor in your network you could use the "event to trap" utility from sms.

The best solution for you would be to use the latest version of Hyena. It is incredible. You can access disk space, event viewer, file updates and lots more and its so easy to install.
SMS 2.0 is also good but it is more complicatedto install and to configure.
