Automating Windows Event log

Posted by Awinish on November 11, 2010

I had the situation once, where i was asked to backup the event log on few server & clear it from server to save the space as well as retain log for audit. While, beating my head on the wall, i stumbled to few sites & i found scripts which actually worked for me to achieve my requirements. I have not written below listed VB script, neither confers any rights on it, use it on your own risk.

      Sure, that is what the intent of this blog is to spread more & more knowledge to the community members. If, it can benefit others, then articles written are both.
