Are you sure the gpo is applied to your servers ?
Are you talking about server as a member server or Domain Controllers ?
Try to run a "gpresult /r" and see if your GPO is applied to the server with the problem.

So you have same problem on both member servers and DC's ?
How long ago did you applied the GPO ? Did you rebooted any of the servers after applying the GPO ?

aspenbr: you are totally wrong here !

You can use the :
"Backup Log Automatically when full" option in the GPO.
This will save old event logs automatically and start a new one.
Have you even tried ??

This policy setting controls Event Log behavior when the log file reaches its maximum size and takes effect only if the “Retain old events” policy setting is enabled.

If you enable this policy setting and the “Retain old events” policy setting is enabled, the Event Log file is automatically closed and renamed when it is full. A new file is then started.

If you disable this policy setting and the “Retain old events” policy setting is enabled, then new events are discarded and the old events are retained.

When this policy setting is not configured and the “Retain old events” policy setting is enabled, new events are discarded and the old events are retained.

Sorry , I am wrong , the GPO work fine , all logs more big that 400 MB create a new file for storage security event.

Thank very much .
