Can i get EXSI (vmware) event logs to be forwarded to the free Windows log server (event subscription) in windows event viewer

My company is using event subscription (log server) to collect all event logs from windows servers through event subscription within windows event viewer.   Is there a way to get EXSI (VMware) logs to forward to this as well or do I need to suggest a real syslog server???

No, Windows Event subscriptions cannot be used for syslog messages.

There is a free software available that implements a syslog daemon for Windows and forwards messages to the Windows event log, but I haven't tried that myself and would not use it:
Syslog daemon for Windows Eventlog

i'd prefer using a real syslog server for ESXi hosts. If you are using vCenter then you can use the vCenter builtin syslog service. Another good alternative is this cool free Linux appliance: Sexilog
