I need to modify EVENT VIEWER Maximum log size with a GPO, Windows 2008r2

We are running a Windows 2008r2 Active Directory environment. I have been given instructions to build a Windows 7 image that we can use as a standard workstation image. Part of the instructions include increasing the maximum log size of the Windows 7 Event Viewer. I did this manually on the image I built and when the workstation was actually joined to the domain the log size reverted back to 2048, which I assume is being set by a GPO. Can anyone give me some suggestions where I would find this GPO in Active Directory and how I would change the max to say 4096?

You are right you can set it via GPO

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


You can also take an RSOP report for that box to see that GPO might be setting the size.

The Group Policy setting is under:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Event Log Service

Setting name: Maximum Log Size (KB)
