Read Only access to Event Viewer


is it possible in Win 2k3 to give a user read-only access to the event viewer through their Computer Management console?

Basically I have a user who needs to be able to view the event logs on a server, and possibly view which services are runnning etc ( the user does not need full admin access)

Is it possible to give the user access so that through the computer management console on his PC (win XP pro) that he can connect to the server to view the logs and services?

Sorry if this is not enough information, thanks for your help

It can be done, but it's not easy...and I'm sorry but won't have a walkthrough for you.

basically you are getting into changing the security SDDL syntax, which is complex to say the least.
