Security Log (always) Full in Windows Server 2003

Hello,

I'm having an issue on my Windows 2003 server (standard Edition) regarding the security event log.

The secuiry log is always filling up (usually within a couple of hours), and so I get all of the friendly reminders from windows.

It appears that an excessive amount of events are being logged.

My question is:
How do I adjust logging of security related events?

I am not looking to just increase my log file, I want to decrease the amount of items being logged (i.e. just critical items).

Thanks,
Eric

hi
check in the gpo that you didn't to configured it to check auditing you don't use
in computerconfiguration/windowssettings/securitysettings/local policy/audit policy
al the settings that are enabled will be logged in the security event log
for all user accessing the folders and users wherefore auditing is turned on
