In part 2 of viewing server event logs on a workstation, you will learn how to use the command line to quickly make firewall adjustments and how to make other adjustments to allow a workstation to remotely gather event details from a Windows Server. Adding computers to groups is done to secure access to the logs.
- [Instructor] In the last video,…we looked at how to connect to…the event logs of one other server.…For this demonstration, I want to have regular access…to error and critical logs from…both my domain controller and the update server,…and I want to view these logs…from my administrator work station,…so I don't have to constantly remote into these servers…one at a time to stay on top of what's happening.…The configuration starts on the servers…that we want to monitor.…We'll refer to these as the forwarding computers.…So here I am, on my domain controller,…and I'm going to start by running a command…in an elevated command prompt.…
Again, that's right clicking on the start menu…and choosing command prompt admin…and I'm going to run a command…that may or may not prove necessary,…but it's easier to run and not need,…then to wonder later why things don't work.…The command is winrm quickconfig…and it automates some Windows firewall…and other settings to allow remote access to the logs.…So there's our verification that it wasn't necessary…
