I would like to create a group policy which does the following on Security log within windows:
Keep the log file for 30 days
Have the maximum security log size big enough to gather 30 days worth of days.
I went into GPO and set the following:
Computer Configuration-> Windows Settings->Security Settings->Event Log
Maximum security Log size: 2999936 kilobytes
Retain Security Log: 30 days
Retention method for security log: By days
I have this GPO applied to the servers that I would like to have this policy and the security logs do not exceed 32 Meg. I get an error that the security log is full when I log on.
I can manually set this, but I would like this to work with GPO's.
Can anyone shed light as to why this is not working?
Thanks in advance,
