Event Viewer Size

All,

Where in Group Policy can I edit the size of the Event Viewer? I would like to increase the size so I can obtain a log that spans for about a week. Thanks

Maximum Event Log Size is what you want to set

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Event Log\

Thanks

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Event Log Service\
There are four subfolders there, one for each log folder in the event viewer. You can set all the options in there.

Alternatively you can create a security template and set it in there, then deploy the template through a GPO.

Or do what mike said. (Sorry, I was looking at gpedit.msc instead of the Group Policy Editor...DOH!)
