I have a few win2k boxes that I would like to be able to grab the Evrnt Logs.

Is there a utility to do this?   What is the easiest way?

I have ran the uptime report and I have a couple units bluescreening and I hope the event logs will tell me why.   I can only access remotely via command line.  


Thanks!

'PsLogList' (free) can do that - see http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/psloglist.shtml

-------------------------------------->8---------------------------------------

The default behavior of PsLogList is to show the contents of the System Event Log on the local computer, with visually-friendly formatting of Event Log records. Command line options let you view logs on different computers, use a different account to view a log, or to have the output formatted in a string-search friendly way.

usage: psloglist [[\\computer[,computer[,..] | @file [-u user [-p psswd]]] [-s [-t delimiter]] [-n #|-h#|-d #] [-x] [-c][-r][-a mm/dd/yy][-b mm/dd/yy][-f filter] [-i ID[,ID[,..]] [-o event source] [-l event log file] [eventlog]
