Event Logs

By noelw ·
Is there a way I can remotely capture(event logs) from any workstations on my network?

I have tried with (savelogs), but this is done only locally.

You cannot do this unless you are using PC Anywhere or any other remote control software on both your local computer and the remote.

I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to accomplish - but on a very basic level you should be able to open the Event Logs for any NT host on your network from any other host on your network as long as you are logged on with an administrator-level account. As far as saving the log information, once you open the log for the selected computer, you should be able to save it to whatever location you want. Now, if you're trying to automate this process in some way, that's a different story. Hopethis helps!

Download load and install VNC on your server:
http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/download.html
Be sure to set a passwrod on VNC.
From any PC you can use the web browser to remote to the server: http://servername:5800
Open the Event Viewer and save the event log as as TXT or Comma Delimited TXT file.
The file can be saved to any drive that can be mapped. It you save it to the server, you can open the file using notepad and select all, press Ctrl-V to copy the selection into the clipboard.
At the top of the browse window is a button for Clipbord. Click on it and select all of its contents and you can paste that into a local document. Another way is the access the file directly from the workstation:
\\servername\C$\filename.txt
