AD Security Log archiving
Posted on 2012-08-28
Could you recommend a tool that will allow me to archive AD logs eg: Security Logs. The tool should have the following :
• Be able to run in command line mode
• Be able to be scheduled, either by itself or through Windows scheduler to be run say at least every 30 minutes
• Should be able to be passed credentials or run as a service and at one location, be able to reach all DCs
• Be able to get to the security logs, zip the logs to minimize the size, move it to a Windows Share, clear the Security logs and provide some kinda report on failure
The plan is to grab security logs several all locations, save them to a secure share, clear the security logs, then run again in the next hour or half hour.
