windows server 2012 R2 default event log policy settings

Does anyone know where I can find the default installed Event log settings for a Windows Server 2012 R2 Domain controller.  I can't find anything on Microsofts site or Technet Library so far.

Event log settings are not defined by default
You have to define it manually
Its recommended to have separate GPO to specify event log settings for DC and apply it to domain controllers OU
The settings can be found under
\\computer configuration\Polices\Windows Settings\security settings event log
You need to configure above settings as appropriate
The recommended setting can be keep security logs upto 200 MB, system and application upto 100 MB and overwrite logs as necessary
Also periodically take event log backups
Its upto you how you want to configure

One more setting can be found under computer configuration\administrative templates\windows components\event log service
Here you can configure automatic event log backups

Hi,

I guess what I was looking for were the documented settings that configured by default the install of 2012.  I'm pretty aware that they have to be configured from this point/Customized for our environment but there are default settings present and I was hoping someone would be aware of the location of the security settings on Microsoft's site.
Thanks

By default windows server event logs stored on machine upto 20 MBs, afterwards those logs are overwritten as needed

You must set event log policy manually according to your need OR
you can follow recommendation from below article
