I am trying to extract logins from the security logs on a win2k3 domain controller. I have tried a few applications to make this easier, but none of them were to my specs. What is everyone using for this? I would like to see if there is something out there I havent looked at yet.

Thanks!

What are you looking from log parser?

Thanks
