I set up a new Subscription services server to collect syslogs from my environment but for some reason I cannot get the security logs to forward.  I see application, setup, system logs but nothing from the security logs.  Do I need to do something to get them to forward to my subscription services server?????

I followed that article.  I got all the windows logs to forward to my collector except for the security logs.  the audit failures and success do not forward.  When setting up my forwarded events I have windows application, security , setup, and system logs checked but for some reason the security logs are the only ones not showing up.  is this a permissions issue??

Have you configured the accounts correctly?  As per KB article, you must add user with administrator privileges:

You must add an account with administrator privileges to the Event Log Readers group on each source computer. You must specify this account in the Configure Advanced Subscription Settings dialog when creating a subscription on the collector computer.

yes I did.  I created a test account.  gave it domain admin rights and added it to the event log readers group.  then set it on the advanced tab of the subscription as seen in my attachment.   I still cannot get the security logs audit success and failures to show up.   also it takes awhile for the events collected from the source servers to propagate to the collector server.   what is the default time for this???
