Access Event log

How to launch or view event log in server core windows 2008 r2.

Only command prompt available upon launching the server core
Avatar of Kimputer

Do it from a client PC nearby. Use eventvwr, and connect to the server.
If you don't like this solution, consider adding all the GUI elements back into the server to make it a more "normal" server
You have 2 options.
Use the wevtutil.exe at the command prompt to get the logs.

Or you can start the eventvwr.msc on a remote computer that can connect to the core server.
Once in  the MMC you can connect to the core server 2012 to view the logs.
