Server 2008 Event Log Warning Messages

Need to disable "Log spooler warning events" in Server 2008 by modifying the registry entry for this feature.  

In Server 2003 this was handled like this:

Setting these values actually updates the registry entry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Providers\EventLog which is a DWORD

value. Each option has a value

Log spooler error events is 1
Log spooler warning events is 2
Log spooler information events is 4

You then add these numbers up for the combination you want, for example:

A value of 7 means log information, error and warning events.

A value of 3 means only log error and warning events.

You have probably noticed the 1, 2 and 4 is because it is just setting the relevant bit in the

DWORD, so bit 1 is error, bit 2 warning and bit 3 information.

BUT, in 2008 server this location is not present anymore.  Need help identifying where to modify the registry entry to disable "Log spooler warning events".

This is how to access the location I am trying to change.
Control Panel
Printers
Right-Click open area
select Run As Administrator
Server Properties
Advanced Tab

Thanks a lot for the help.

Figured it out:

This command will show the location of the Printer Warning in the registry and the numerical value can be set based on the values above.

reg update hklm\system\currentcontrolset\control\print\providers\eventlog=5
