Pinned topic 6.2.3.01 Windows OS Agent - Monitor any Event log instead of standard 5

‏2012-08-22T05:24:55Z |
Hi All,

I have just updated to 6.2.3 Fix Pack 1 of the Monitoring Agent for Windows OS so that I can monitor any Event Log instead of only the five standard Windows event logs: Application, System, Security, DNS Server, and Directory Service or File Replication Service.

I can only seem to find the below information but cannot seem to find any more on setting this up.

Note:
You must specify the exact name of the event log you want to monitor. The Windows Registry Editor lists the event log name as a key in either of two paths:
◦HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog
◦HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WINEVT\Channels
The name of the event log is the key listed under the Eventlog or Channels key. For example, the Application event log has the key:

◦HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Application

The location for the log I'm looking to monitor would be HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WINEVT\Channels\AD FS 2.0/Admin

Any help or links to instructions would be much appreciated.

Thanks Sean

    Hi Seanburnett

    I have just read your post, and I have encountered the same problem. Were you eventually able to solve it? I need to monitor one particular EventLog (Repsol) developed for the client I am working for and , up to now, I couldn´t find the appropiate way to capture it. Thanks and regards
