  • Has anyone created or know of a script that can clear a particular Event Viewer log and save the details to a file in a specific location? Specificially, the Security log is the one in question.

    The following script will use Systernals/Microsoft's PsLogList utility to dump the security event log to security.evt file in specified path (agent temp folder by default) and clear the log.

    You will need to obtain PsLogList.exe (part of PsTools) andplace it in Shared Files on your KServer.

    Note that Step 2 is there to delete any prior security.svt files in target path since it is not automagically overwritten by PsLogList.

    Script Name: Event Log Archive
    Script Description: Use PsLogList utility to dump the Security event log to security.evt and clear entries.
