Hello,
I have a script which collects printing logs from print server using logparser. We have moved our print server to Window 2008 R2. The problem is, I was querying printing logs from System logs (select ... from \\printserver\system), but on 2008 R2, these logs are under "application and services logs\Microsoft\Windows\PrintService\Operational". What must I use at the end of the query (select ..... \\printserver\????) ?

Are you using WMIC to query the log files?

WMIC NTEVENT where "LogFile='application and services' and Type>'0'"

Adjust for what you are looking for.

Hello, I am using "log parser", not WMIC.

It appears that either someone else is asking for the same information or this is also you on http://forums.iis.net/1140.aspx (the logparser forum) There is no answer as of yet.

Let me see what I can find.  I haven't used log parser before. WMIC is pretty simple to use though.

Ok, I have found it. Logparser checks "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\eventlog" for event logs. When I created a key named "Microsoft-Windows-PrintService/Operational", I have succesfully reached this log.

I have created this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Microsoft-Windows-PrintService/Operational
