Can I change event viewer logging settings using group policy?

Hi,

I would like to be able to change the Event Viewer settings for the Log Size and Overwrite Method on all PC's in a domain. For example all clients to have a log file size of 5,120 KB and Overwrite Events As Needed.

Rather than do this manually, can I do this using Group Policy?

Hi, thanks for your quick response. I have looked at this link but Event Viewer is not listed on my server (Windows Server 2003 Std SP2). Is this something I can / need to add? Forgive my ignorance but I have never really played with GPO.

Try this...

open --> Default Domain Policy --> Computer Configuration  --> Windows Settings --> Security Settings  --> Local Policies  --> Event Log section.
