We have a requirement to retain Windows client's Event Logs for 90 days off client. Does anyone know if SCE has any capability to offload Event Logs to the SCE Database? We currently use Event Archiver for our servers, but this could get expensive. SCE provides some additional capability that we currently do not have like software distribution and client health monitoring.

So, does SCE have the abilitity to archive client events and is there any retention settings. I have not been able to find an answer either way at SCE or Technet and the documentation for this product appears to be non-existent.

Hello Henschel, as far is i know this is not something you can do with SCE or SCOM. SCE and SCOM will only pick up event log items when its defined by a rule so if you could make rules for all important event you could store them.
Is a specific rule set you have to keep for 90 days or all events?
When you have to keep all events SCE or SCOM is not the way to go and you should look into an other tool.
Regards,
Walter
