saving event log to remote machine?

I had read that you were only supposed to be able to save event logs (.evt
format) to the local hard drive. However I was just able to save to remote
machine using mapped drive and a UNC path? This was done from windows server
2k3 sp1. Maybe this change was with sp1? anyone know?

I also cross-posted to the cert groups because I was wondering how to handle
this type of thing on a test... for example, book says you can't, hands on
testing says you can....

David,

The Windows Resource Kit has a tool called elogdump which does this, but
PsLogList does this just fine.

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sys...PsLogList.mspx

Either one works fine.

I believe you've always been able to *export* / save the event log file to a
network drive.

I would expect the cert question would be asking whether you can permanently
*move* the location of the original log file to a network drive, which you
should not be able to do.
