We have the need for our developers to connect to a server using their event viewer msc and read the event logs. However, they cannot be local admins on this server. The developers are using Windows XP sp3.
The server is Microsoft Server 2008 Standard SP1
I've searched and found an old trick in Server 2003 to add a CustomSD key to a specific place in the registry with a string with the following value:
O:BAG:SYD:(D;;0xf0007;;;AN)(D;;0xf0007;;;BG) (A;;0xf0007;;;SY)(A;;0x7;;;BA)(A;;0x5;;;SO)(A;;0x1;;;IU)(A;;0x1;;;SU) (A;;0x1;;;S-1-5-3)(A;;0x2;;;LS)(A;;0x2;;;NS)
However, this still hasn't worked.
