Vista Remote Event Log viewer
Hi,
How can I view event logs on a remote machine running Vista? I can view
remote events on machines running XP and 2003 but not Vista..... The Vista
machine all have their remote registry service running already. But when I
connect to a remote machine via event viewer, it always complain that rpc
server is not available......

Please help.

Marshall

Re: Vista Remote Event Log viewer
Try disabling the Firewall on Vista and see if this works. If it works ,
re-enable the firewall and work from there.

Alternatively, you can setup Event Forwarding on Vista.

Re: Vista Remote Event Log viewer
Something strange is going on. On my domain server (Server 2003), I can
access the event logs on Vista PCs. But when I am at my station running
Vista, I cannot access the logs on other Vista PCs.... Doesn't sound quite
like a firewall issue as it should have blocked the 2003 server as well....

Re: Vista Remote Event Log viewer
You need to make a registry change.

Re: Vista Remote Event Log viewer
Thanks for the link. Followed the link, added the DWORD to the registry and
rebooted. Fired up Event view and tried to connect to a remote machine.
Same error of RPC Server unavailable.....

Re: Vista Remote Event Log viewer
The change has to be done on the remote machine if the remote machine is
running Vista.
