Hello,
I have a regular user which i'm looking to give permissions to have the SIEM read the AD logs (2008 R2).
I don't want to make that user a Domain Admin so i need to know what (if any) permissions (and how) i need to assign to have him read the security log (as of right now simple read permissions as everyone else fail)

Normal user access will not work to login DC. you need to forward DC logs to other server and that server, you can allow user to access DC logs.

I guess you just need to populate the built-in group "eventlog readers"
