Move event logs from one view to another

We have Server Backup running once a week on one of our servers and the backups are successful. The issue is that the Backup Event logs are not being written into the Application log viewer. They are instead going into "Event Viewer (Local)\Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\Backup\Operational". Our backup monitoring can only see events in the Application, Security and System logs and therefore we are unable to verify the status of the backups through our monitoring.

My Question is; how would we change the location where the events are being written to the Application logs? I have looked through the backup and event viewer settings and have found nothing that would let me change or move the logs from one view to another.

Hi,

I don't think you can change this, but you should check your "monitoring", it may allow custom logs to be monitored ? Try to read from a log called "Microsoft-Windows-Backup" .

I've already checked into this and that fine of monitoring is not available. As for the Event logs them selves, this is the only server we have out of 5-6 running almost identical configuration that does not write backup events to the application logs. The main differences between this and the other servers is their role, but they are all Server 2008 R2 running Server Backup to an internal destination drive.  

We should be able to look for the event at that level but our backup checks are pre-configured depending on the type of backup we select to monitor for, and all of the ones we do monitor write to the Application Event Logs.

Without any changes being made to the server or our backup check the latest backup check passed as it was able to see the successful backup event check.

No changes were made to any of the involved systems but now we can monitor the backups.
