How to disable specific Event ID's from being logged in Event Viewer
Posted on 2009-07-07
I have an event in my event viewer that I would like to simply not log at all. It's from my IIS FTP site, W2K3 SBS which tells me that an FTP user has timed out after xxx seconds. The users are from PLC type controllers that send files to our server on the hour. Each hour I get many of these warnings as the controller finishes uploading it's log files. I have played with the timeout settingson the FTP site from 5 seconds to 240 seconds which is what it is set on now. The controller, once done uploading don't disconnect for some reaosn but in it's logs I can see it issue a Quit command at the end. It doesn't seem to hurt that they don't disconnect so I just want to stop the event log from logging this event. What do I need to do to stop this? The ID is:
User OMT2@omt.com at host 192.168.1.34 has timed-out after 240 seconds of inactivity.
Again, this login comes from a machine that uploads it's log files to an FTP folder on our server. I have messed with the controller settings, contacted the Manufacturer and, now, just want to disable this Warning in my event log. How do I go about this?
