On W7 clients, I need to create/deploy remotely a custom event to which  task is connected running as SYSTEM and with highest privileges. Additionally, I need to create remotely a custom view for this event. How can this be done via GP or script?

I need to apply on remote W7 clients a scheduled task which is triggered by a custom event and which starts a script/program if the event appears. Additionally, a custom view for the custom event is needed on the clients.

Do you have any possibility to deploy that command to your Clients?
Group Policy, SCCM Server, ect.
If not you can do it manually on each Client from your Remote AdminPC with PSEXEC
http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx

The command to create the Task is:
schtasks /create /TN "My Trigger" /RU SYSTEM  /TR "SomeAction.exe"  /SC ONEVENT /MO *[System/EventID=666]

Open in new window


With Psexec it would be like:
psexec \\Client1 "cmd /c schtasks /create /TN "My Trigger" /RU SYSTEM  /TR "SomeAction.exe"  /SC ONEVENT /MO *[System/EventID=177]"

Open in new window

I tried the schtasks cmd, but it seems that the /MO paramter doesn't work.

error: the specified channel could not be found. Check channel configuration.

ok, it works as

schtasks /create /TN "My Trigger" /RU SYSTEM /TR "SomeAction.exe" /SC ONEVENT /EC Application /MO *[Application/EventID=10]

Now, is there a possibility to enable "Run with highest privileges"?

Yes, I would like using a Group Policy.

Ok, i missed that Parameter.

SYSTEM (Local System) always has the highest privileges on a Client.

So you run it as a script, or how have you planned it?

Sorry for the late reply. I think, I'll try to apply it by a script via GP. Custom views are stored in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Event Viewer\Views\", so I'll create such a custom view for the custom events to and apply it by copying onto the clients.

Thank you for your help.
