Is it enough just to set the service account to be local admin on the web server machine?  Or is there other permission needs to be set?  Thank you.
This is a Windows' 2008 server.

Local admin permissions would be enough to write to the local event log. If you are writing to remote machines then permissions need to be set accordingly.
