How to stop local system user login event audting

Posted on 2004-11-24

I have a windows 2003 server which is a domain controller.  This system logs a huge amount of local System user login / logouts in the event log (lots for Network Service also).  I know that I can filter the event log viewer to not display succesful events, but if it is possible I would like to stop recording System login / logout events.  

I do not have login auditing defined in the default domain group policy; however it is defined and enabled for some user OU's

    I would make the change in the "default domain controllers" policy.  You can just audit failures.
