Hi,

I have a Windows 2003 Domain Controller and some XP computers on the domain.  I would like to retrieve the event logs to the domain controller.  Is there an easy and secure way to do this?

There is another utility called eventSentry. It is used for this reason.

I really like this tool:

Hey Bryan,

While the above suggestions will work, there's really no need to install any other software.

Using your computers Event Viewer, you can right-click on "Event Viewer (local)" on the left pane and select "Connect to another computer," at which point you can connect to any computer that would give you access to view their Event Log (ie: admin rights).
