We need to monitor the server as far back as 6 months - Security Logs.
I have set the Security Log to maximum, and now I get 'The security log is now full.'

I noticed the 'Security Log' can only be set to:
Maximum security log size 4194240 kilobytes, that is the maximum.    Which does not allow me to have 6 months of security logs.
Retention method for security log Manually.

Does anyone have any suggestions on this?
