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 your specs, that the log parsers that you have tried so far did not meet your expectations?

What are you looking from log parser?

Thanks

If you just need logins and the logs appear in a uniform format, you can probably just write a simple perl script to do the extractions for you. If you can post an example of a log I might be able to help more...
