This is the first of three videos showing how to use the Event Viewer on a workstation to monitor servers. It opens with a Windows error message offering information that is both accurate and helpful. You will learn how to configure the Windows Firewall on a Windows Server to allow a remote server or workstation to view event logs.
- [Instructor] Once an administrator gets a feel…for how important log files can be and they've configured…their preferences as new custom views,…the next thing to figure out his how to get…the logs from all other servers to appear in one place.…There are two different ways to do this.…We can choose to view logs from a single remote server…or we can configure multiple servers to forward their events…to one or more locations that are gathering the data.…Let's take a look at both.…First, if I want to take a look at the log files…on another server, but I'm not looking to create…a permanent relationship between the two machines,…I can right click on this Event Viewer Local…at the top of this tree in the left hand pane…and select Connect to Another Computer.…
Now this dialogue appears pretty simple.…I can just type in another computer name and click OK,…but it often fails because of a Windows firewall restriction…on the remote computer that I'm trying to monitor.…I went ahead and did it anyway to point out…the instructions that Windows provides if it's not set up.…
